Comments: "I live on the high bank of the St. Joseph river ,here in Mishawaka ,IN. Here are a few of my macro images of the local flies."
Great pics, Rory! This appears to be a slightly different variety than what we have here on Lake Erie. The middle one you identified as an immature mayfly is really interesting. We've never seen anything like that. Folks, the bottom pic shows a poor mayfly caught in a spiderweb - that's why he looks so messed up.

Mayfly photo - Powhatan Point, Ohio
Photo taken by: Susan
Location: Near Powhatan Point, Ohio USA
Date: July 10, 2011
Comments: I took them off a creek near Powhatan Point, Ohio just off the Ohio River.  I was looking to find out what they were when I found your site.  I like to have the right name for my bug on Deviant Art.  I took a lot of pictures because I had never seen these insects before.  After I figured out what the insect was I was surprised there was a web site for this creature.  I used a Nikon D40 and a 200mm lens by the way.
 Fabulous pics Susan!! (gotta get me one of those cameras)
