Mayflies in Point Place Video (may be included in upcoming BBC program)

Hello all,

A grade school classmate posted a Mayfly video on YouTube.
A BBC staffer found it, contacted my classmate, and rec'd permission from
my classmate to use it in an upcoming BBC production.

The video is at linktext
And yes, there is a Part II !

LC, we get used to it out here in the Point. And, the more Mayflies, the healthier the lake.

Someone on TT (maybe INeedCoffee?) did some time-lapse shots. It would be really fascinating to get some mayfly time-lapse videos.

I basically live in the point and its still icky. I shut off just about all lights when the mayflies are swarming.

If anyone has a URL for the time lapse shots, please post!
I'd like to see them and pass them on to my friend...maybe even alert person about BBC...

Thanks in advance for any/all efforts.
