Female Mayfly

A female Mayfly settled on a Buttercup. Such is the ephemeral life cycle of the adult Maylfy (they live as little as a day in winged form) that they usually die, spent, soon after spawning. Taken along the River Thames in Oxfordshire. There was a big hatch on the Thames on this particular day and it was magical watching them all shimmering in the adjacent fields and even settling on me while I took photos.
