Alkali flies are hatching by the millions on Mono Lake, and they're just starting to form a thin black line around the lake with their bodies.

Mark Twain mentioned that they were 6 feet wide, stretching 60 miles around the lake when he visited.

I'll be shooting in this area later this week and next week. (If you'd like to join me, check my Web site for my Fall schedule.)
