[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
What an exotic creature this is. Two sets of transparent wings. One set visible through the other. And why such a long tail? When I see this, I think Cleopatra going up the Nile or something. :-)

Wikipedia photos seem to confirm that this is a Mayfly.

More extension tube work. Hope you enjoy.
Reid

Hi Reid,
A fine capture of a very strange looking fly. They must taste great though. From what I read, the trout love them. Great detail and color. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Reid,
Nice shot of amazing creature
well done.
TFS.

Looks like fun working with the tubes. If given a choice I believe I would appreciate this one slightly better. Perhaps I am R/L brained. Yet a wonderful production.
