Ephemera danica
 
The Mayflies are small to medium insects with two or three long 'tails' and short antennae. They are usually found near water, when resting the wings are held vertically over the body as they are physically unable to fold their wings along their bodies.
 
The adult lifespan of Ephemeroptera, depending on the species, is between 30 minutes to one day.
