Bug of the Week .......                                                                                                                                                                               June  26, 2017
    This week I wanted to post a bug pic, and decided to put this guy up for my bug geek friends. This is a mayfly specie that we don't talk about much, probably because it's a late season emergence that often starts to show when a lot of trout streams are starting to warm up. Anthopotamus distinctus, aka the "Golden Drake"  is a rather large and beautifully colored mayfly that has a few unique traits. Interestingly this is one of the few species where the males do not have eyes that are significantly larger than their female counterparts, and the nymphs have large tusks like burrowing mayfly varieties, but are not true burrowers . Pictured here is a male spinner I photographed on the Manatawny creek near Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Enjoy .......
