Premature shad-ulation? We have our first sighting …
On Saturday, May 22, Carla Ammerata spotted a shadfly near Olmsted Beach, Trout Lake. Admittedly, that’s a considerable distance from Lake Nipissing, which is famous for its annual late-June, early July shadfly infestation. This shadfly doesn’t quite look like the same kind that come out of Nipissing, but that’s close enough for Back in the Bay Magazine to announce its shadfly photo contest. To enter a June 20 draw offering free magazine subscriptions, business card ads, hats and T-shirts, email your best shadfly photo from any year to firstname.lastname@example.org
