November Baetis

The images below were taken today on Silver Creek. Pretty warm at the Creek when I was there; about 44 degrees but windy. The baetis came off anyway and there were fish up on them. This particular baetis was about a size #18. For all of you wanting one more day on the Nature Conservancy section, this is the final week of the season. Everything on Silver Creek upstream of the Highway 20 Bridge will be closed starting December 1st. 

I used the Nikon Micro 105 with an extension tube for these images.  Between 12:15 and about 1:30 there were a lot of baetis.

The fish were far more skittish today and did not let me get very close.  I did manage to get a couple of frames just after a take or two.
