At the weekend we went to North Yorkshire to visit our family and go to the Malton Food Festival. This was excellent with lots of streetfood opportunities. The only problem I had was, being wheat free, there aren’t many “things in a bun” I can eat confidently.
However, that wasn’t the point of this blog entry.
Whilst we were there, on the Monday we went for a wander looking for Elderflowers. As we wandered along the river, we were lucky enough to see the Mayflies hatching from the river. I think that there were millions of them (although my better half says hundreds). As usual, I had my trusty “point and shoot” camera with me and was able to get a few pictures
I have no idea what sort of Mayflies they are but they were pretty impressive flying up and then drifting back down in (what I think) was their millions.
Reading around the web, it seems that we were really lucky as the Mayflies only appear for a few days and it seems that this year they were earlier than 2013.
As well as the pictures, my camera takes videos (don’t they all) and to give you a better impression, click here and there is a link to a short video (sorry about the quality, the autofocus doesn’t always focus well).
I really enjoy going out into the countryside to see what’s happening.
