Today while fishing I was watching for signs of anything hatching. The morning fog had lifted and it was beginning to brighten. A small speck in the film caught my eye. It was a little different from the sycamore seeds I'd been seeing. I reached out and was able to get it on my index finger. While I was trying to figure out just what it was it transformed from a midge pupa/emerge to an emerger to an adult midge. All this happened in a matter of a couple seconds. A second or so after the transformation to an adult it flew off.
If I'd known when I first picked it off the film I would have tried to get pictures of it. I have a series of a caddis making the transformation from emerger to adult. That took about five minutes so I was able to record it. Hopefully the next time I can record a midge.
