Local man holds a long-tailed mayfly (Palingenia longicauda) in his hand during the insects' swarming called Tiszaviragzas (Blooming of Tisza) on the river Tisza in Tiszainoka (some 135 km south-east from Budapest), Hungary on June 20, 2012.

I expressly hate bugs and insects of all sorts, but the Blooming of river Tisza (Tiszavirágzás in Hungarian) is my favorite natural phenomenon and its participants the Longtailed mayflies are my favourite bugs insects.

Red Bull Air Race 2008

this year there was no flying under Chain Bridge

This year none of the pilots were allowed to make the fly under landmark Chain Bridge which became a tradition bound to the race. However the operative branch overseeing security measures of the event did allow the flights under the bridge, organisers of Red Bull decided not to take the risk considering the high water level of the river and the high amount of debris it carries with it. They didn’t want to risk adding some airplane parts to it.
