Ephemera danica

Ephemera danica - Female spinner (Spent)
Body creamy white with last three segments coloured brown. Wings, heavily veined and transparent with dark patches.
Looks like she may have lost a tail though, Mayflies have 3 tails, I can only make out two.
Amazing creature - great photo.
May-ed my day.
