Underwater photos by Troutnut from Eighteenmile Creek in Wisconsin

This is my favorite underwater picture so far. It shows a bunch of Simuliidae (black fly) larvae clinging to a rock and swinging in the fast current. There are also at least four visible mayfly nymphs, probably in the family Baetidae.  In this picture: Mayfly Family Baetidae (Blue-Winged Olives) and True Fly Family Simuliidae (Black Flies). From Eighteenmile Creek in Wisconsin.

Light reflected from air bubbles left ghostly wisps in this fairly long exposure picture beneath a riffle.  It's got an accidental artistic look. From Eighteenmile Creek in Wisconsin.

A peculiar mayfly nymph clings to a log.  I'm not sure if it's a Heptageniid clinger or a flat-bodied Ephemerellid crawler, but I don't believe it's a species I've collected yet.  In this picture: Insect Order Ephemeroptera (Mayflies). From Eighteenmile Creek in Wisconsin.
