Finally on top, but the way the trout were feeding on these little critters it's still a precarious situation.

I found some quite water and attempted a sequence of midge photos from pupa to adult. Although the water surface was flat the current speed still challenged my ability to frame, focus and shoot close-ups.

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

Allan,

Very nice! I remember once, when I was taking a nephew fishing back in the 90's sometime, he and I had stopped for a snack on the banks of the North Branch of the Au Sable. We had a dragonfly nymph crawl up on the log between us and proceeded to emerge...It would of been nice if I would of had something to catch the action with. He couldn't believe what he was watching...

Thanks!

Spence
