Wisconsin Is Getting Smothered by Millions of Horny Maylies

Close your mouth while looking at these photos, or a bug might fly in.

by John Metcalfe

This storm-cloud-looking apparition is actually a massive swarm of mayflies, an “emergence" of them, to get all Lovecraftian. Mayfly nymphs spend a year or two in the water (in this case, the Mississippi River) munching on organic decay.

Then, when summer arrives, they take flight en masse and proceed to make sweet bug love before immediately going back to the water to lay eggs and die.

This year’s emergence was so large people were comparing it to the last Biblical-style, one in 2012. If you don’t recall that stunning example of life’s majesty…

“And you are made of a hundred trillion cells. We are, each of us, a multitude.”
Carl Sagan, Cosmos

“But there is nothing in biology yet found that indicates the inevitability of death.”
Richard P. Feynman

“If we are merely matter intricately assembled, is this really demeaning? If there’s nothing here but atoms, does that make us less or does that make matter more?”
Carl Sagan, The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search for God

“We are biology. We are reminded of this at the beginning and the end, at birth and at death. In between we do what we can to forget.”
Mary Roach, Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

“When you look more generally at life on Earth, you find that it is all the same kind of life. There are not many different kinds; there’s only one kind. It uses about fifty fundamental biological building blocks, organic molecules.”
Carl Sagan, The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search for God

After hiking for twelve hours out of a nineteen hour trek, it was time to watch the sunrise at Dinosaur Ridge. When we first looked out, the mountains were completely covered by clouds, but within an hour the clouds dropped and this was what we saw. It felt like heaven, and you could hear everyone present for this moment screaming and shouting for joy! I’d never seen something so incredible, I had to meditate and have gratitude to have experienced this. Some locals said that they’d never seen the mountains like this, even in their 40+ years of hiking there. (© Ka Ram Shim/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest)
