  1. This looks like a under water stick insect( only joking) . Does it actually go under water or live along the edge. Fascinating species. Posted 3 years ago
    1. :D yes, it can also prey small insects on the water surface, like Gerridae or Velidae water bugs. Usually you can find them along the edge, although they are very small and not so easy to spot. Thanks for you appreciation, Ernst! Posted 3 years ago, modified 3 years ago
  2. Great shot! So sharp! Posted 3 years ago
    1. Thanks so much, Lisa! I’m in love with my “new” Helios 44-2 55mm lens for macro ;) Cheers* Posted 3 years ago
