The children were having a lot of fun scooping up the pond life from the pond with the nets we provided and learning about what they had caught. One lucky boy swept up a smooth newt, while someone else found a stickleback. Other highlights include...
|Diving Beetle Larva|
|Caddisfly larva casing|
|Caddisfly larva with diving beetle|
Sadly, there were no water scorpions or great silver diving beetles, which are two aquatic insects I wanted to find this year as part of my ultimate bug hunt challenge.
