This July 20, 2014 photo provided by the National Weather Service in LaCrosse, Wis., shows a massive swarm of mayflies captured on radar as they emerge from the Mississippi River and drift north with the wind. A NOAA spokesman says they know the images show insects when the swarm appears over the river with no warning, but they don’t know what kind of bug it is until people start calling in mayflies in this case.
