Chironomidae (Midges) True Fly Adult Pictures

One of the only real benefits I've got from my rearing aquarium so far is that I've had quite a variety of midges emerge, giving me a chance to photograph these fragile little insects which are otherwise really hard to transport in photogenic form. This one recovered from being gassed and flew away before I could photograph it on the ruler, but it was very small, around 1.5mm.

This true fly was collected from Mystery Creek #62 in New York on April 23rd, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on April 25th, 2007.
