That was actually one of the main reasons I started photographing insects and building this website. The color plates in my mayfly books are all well and good, but it's pretty hard to see the belly color. That's understandable from the perspective of a publisher who wants to fill his limited space with attractive, elegant side shots, but it's frustrating for a tier to try and guess what color that shaded half-hidden underbelly really is. The Internet was the perfect answer to that little problem.
