This small mayfly (Ephemeroptera) with red eyes and clear wings and abdomen is very delicate.

While I was unprepared for macros (I had my regular lens out this evening), I was still able to get a good shot of this ebony jewelwing (Calopteryx maculata) in the leaves.

Midge on Tap

leave a comment »


1/125s, f11, 800ISO, autoWB, 90mm Tamron macro.

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.
