Céide Midge
Míoltóg Chéide

Céide Fields, Ballycastle, County Mayo

This tiny insect can be experienced at Céide Fields on warm, calm, humid days in summer. The female midge needs a blood meal to provide enough protein for all her eggs and if she can't get this she will have to use up some of her own flight muscle tissue.
