I searched for information on these small midges (Diptera: Chironomidae: Orthocladiinae) that are attracted to maple sap but had no luck finding out what these midges are. My neighbour who also taps trees notes that more appear towards the end of the season.

While looking for macro subjects on this warm afternoon, I saw a spider web on a nannyberry that led me to notice rapidly moving stoneflies (Plectoptera), some of which were mating. I’ve take photos of stoneflies on Viburnum lentago before leading me to wonder if they have a particular liking for this shrub. This is also the earliest that I’ve seen these spring stoneflies about, not surprising since we’ve had such warm weather.
