From the Gallery: "Mayfly" print

The pen-and-ink drawing entitled "Mayfly" depicts a Midwestern fern and a Midwestern mayfly. The shape of the  leaves of the fern (Genus Asplenium) struck me as remarkably similar to the profile of the mayfly's wings. I found both, posed as shown, in a central Indian prairie-edge stream valley. 

The print edition of 200 sold out several years ago.
