This realistic Mayfly Weathervane is a perfect complement to a water element garden or in tandem placement with our Leaping Trout Weathervane.

The mayfly sculpture piece can be made with or without a fishing hook. We can do the fish hook in copper, brass, nickel silver, or with optional leafing in palladium or gold leaf depending on your preference.

Mayflies or shadflies are insects belonging to the order Ephemeroptera (from the Greek εφήμερος, ephemeros = “short-lived” (literally “lasting a day” “daily” or “day-long”), and πτερόν, pteron = “wing”, referring to the brief lifespan of adults. They have been placed into an ancient group of insects termed the Palaeoptera, which also contains dragonflies and damselflies. They are aquatic insects whose immature stage, called “naiad” or, colloquially, ‘nymph’, usually lasts one year in fresh water.

The adults are short-lived, from a few minutes to a few days, depending on the species. About 2,500 species are known worldwide, including about 630 species in North America. The naiads live primarily in streams under rocks, decaying vegetation, or in the sediment. Few species live in lakes, but they are among the most prolific. For example, the emergence of one species of Hexagenia was recorded on Doppler weather radar along the shores of Lake Erie!
