Mayflies in June!

Insect mayfly good

Yesterday this lovely mayfly selected our kitchen door for a special event…

insect mayfly molted

A perfect molting location! This morning the mayfly was gone! Just like a soft shell crab, it had left it’s outgrown shell behind!  …unless some locals from around Lake Victoria found it before it flew away and made  it part of a favorite protein-rich patty called ‘Kungu’… I love soft shell crabs so maybe…?

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
