My son and I caught this larva (along with various other aquatic bugs) in a nearby puddle in the woods the other day. We brought them with us home for closer study! I've posted some more shots from the occasion on the blog »
The mosquito larvae ended up as much appreciated dinner for the fishes in our aquarium – but first I had to snap a few shots of them.

Eddie The Bugman says: An excellent image John, Mosquito larvae certainly do make good fish food, the one insect I dread during the Summer, mainly because I react badly to the bites :o) Posted on: April 16, 2014
