Happy looking nymph

Post by Charles Krebs »

Well it looks like it's smiling. Don't have a clue what it is. There were quite a few in a sample I took from my favorite pond. And those jaws were not just for show. There was a small water boatman in the water with him, and he finished it off quickly (lower shot)

Dear Charles,

Brilliant images of a beetle larva.
Last week I attended the opening of the European Desk of the Annals of improbable research. (It opened here in Rotterdam, there must be something funny about this city:) Perhaps the smiling beetle larva would be interesting for them? They are always looking for weird images.


best regards,
