Default Grande Opera

though it is somehow sad, this dead mayfly reminded me of the opera buffo's Harlekin, so I did some artwork on it

This is one in a trillion! That's how many swarm to mate in a year around Missisippi! Read more here!

The life span of the creature is mostly underwater. This is likely a male, having done its job, it's through! I think it's better viewed as a ballet as the cloud of mayfly do dance!

Yes, it's a sad ballet if one looks from this end of the life cycle!

I don't feel the sadness, this all feels so natural. And I love the artwork, Wolfgang.
