Random Eye Dull Photo - Mayfly

One early morning while camping I took some pictures of an idle mayfly. This is the same photo, zoomed in various levels (click on the images for larger views):

Mayflies are pretty interesting creatures - they spend most of their life underwater and then when they grow wings, they leave the water - only to live for 30 minutes to a day or two. You can read more about them on Wikipedia.
