Dear Friend

May Flies!

She's not quite reached this stage in her evolution, but wait until after the election. Strong and stable in headlong flight!

The photograph below, taken yesterday evening, shows a swarm of mayflies directly above our motorhome on the shore of Ulster's Lough Neagh (the largest lake in the British Isles). As flies, they have up to two days in which to live; dancing, meeting and mating in the air and dying soon afterwards, the females pausing only to lay up to 3,000 eggs.

We have much to learn from nature: for example the mayfly, by its very name, knows that June brings the end of May and if only it were so for us . . . . .

Regards

Barry and Margaret
