Life is short

Mayflies are insects which belong to the order Ephemeroptera, from the Greek words εφήμερος (ephemeros) = "short-lived", and πτερόν (pteron) = "wing", referring to the short life span of adults.

 

I dedicate this photo to my wife, who spotted the little insect in our bathroom and encouraged me to photograph it.
