Photos from the Moormans

Just a few photos from a trip to the Moormans this morning.  In this photo, a flatheaded mayfly that we see quite a lot in the summer: Epeorus vitreus.  That's a pretty nice photo.  One of the key traits of this species is easy to see -- the four pale spots on the leading edge of the head.

And the flatheaded nymph that I commonly see this time of the year in our mountain streams, Maccaffertium ithaca.


Still hoping the Rivanna will clear before all of the small minnow mayflies are gone.  Yesterday, it was very high and very muddy.    I'm normally complaining about the lack of water by now, but this year we have just the opposite problem.
