FINISHED DRAFT OF THE MAYFLY
DOWNLOAD AND COLOUR THE MAYFLY
I spotted the mayfly on one of my walks with my dog Isla, close to the lilly pads of Rydal Water, in the roots of a fallen tree by the water. I didn't see it at first, but I was searching for some inspiration and balanced myself on a rock in the water to see what might be living in the roots. There it was, a freshly hatched Mayfly, wings still drying out, and next to it the old case it had lived in all this time. It was very beautiful with intricate patterns on the wings and a long tail. I wasn't even sure if I would be able to draw it, and it turned out as a more complex picture for colouring, maybe too difficult to colour in? I'm not even sure if it will be included in the final book yet, and I have no idea about how to add the augmented reality to it yet. Might have to use my imagination here, and have it fly off in the app version?
I would love it if you downloaded this page for your own use, coloured it in, and then let me know how you got on. What mark would you give this page out of five? One being the worst, five being the best. What would you change, and what would you like to see on the augmented reality version in the final book, if it makes it through the process. I would love you to beta test this page, download it for free on the file below, and share your feedback and any photos of your picture with me in the comments below.
