Swarming under the stars taken by Imre Potyó from Hungary is in the best images of 2016. Imre pityó captured the chaotic swarming of mayflies on Hungary’s River Rába. The unique moment for a few days each year can be seen (at the end of July or beginning of Augusts) when the adult insects emerge from the Danube tributary, where they developed as larvae.
