Pond in April

Lucy and I were trying to film pond skaters with her waterproof camera but could not get a well focused shot.

The longer we looked though, the more we saw. Lots of tiny diving beetles, a small water boatman and, best of all, lots of caddis fly larvae in jewel-like cases made from pieces of water crowfoot. We were very happy with this picture, which shows the larva swimming along with a friend.
