SHIROTANIGAWA_KAGEROU(M)

Though last weekend was the last one which I could spend as temporary single, I had no chance to go fishing because of bad weather.

Instead of fishing, I could see this mayfly's dun at my apartment. I thought it was male SHIROTANIGAWA_KAGEROU mayfly by its two tails, body size(about 10mm) and its color. He seemed to belong to HIRATA_KAGEROU's family.


I put him into plastic case to see its final ecdysis to spinner.
But I missed that moment, since he did it during my shower time.

After I moved him to terrace, he flew away by himself. I hope he gave me good inspiration for fly tying.

これはすごい!夏休みの宿題みたい!それにしてもきれいに脱げてます。結構複雑な形なのに短時間で脱皮できちゃうんですね。次は一挙手一投足のパラパラ写真とか、脱ぎそこない写真とか、、、楽しみにしてます(お前がやれと言われそう)。

そうそう、あまりに短い時間に写真の状態まで脱皮していたので、驚いたのと、がっかりしたのと…。気配を感じたんでしょうね。それにしても、今の住居は、季節の移り変わり目がわかって面白いです。このカゲロウは川でもまだ見たことがなくて、私にとっては初物でした。
