Most mornings as I walk out to my garage I am greeted by a variety of visitors. The large light on the garage attracts a cast of nighttime wanderers who decide to land on my garage doors.
Yes, it is May, and I am visited by mayflies.
I get a number of varieties depending on the time of year. Sadly, I don't remember the types and classifications any more (I was better at recognizing them when I was actively fly fishing for trout).
Not be be left out, we also get an occasional caddisfly. Both the mayflies and caddisflies live in the creek.
When I come home at night the visitors are gone. Did they leave to mate? Food for birds? A small mystery to ponder.
