It’s extraordinary how little I have really observed of our world, or even just of the local area. In fact, I’m a little annoyed at myself for not having much of a clue about what it is that I’m actually taking pictures of most of the time! The feeling is all the more exacerbated when I finally manage to research and name the bug, and it’s described as “very common.”
Once again, I present you with a picture of a creature I have never seen before, yet when I looked around the immediate area, there were bloody loads of them! The reservoir I was at yesterday is a fly fisherman’s favourite spot, and the Alder Fly, as seen here, is apparently favoured as a tasty lure for the fish.
Again, it’s not a pretty face, and I never saw any in flight – but, personally, I think the wing vein pattern is remarkable.
