I'm not quite sure what this is.  It may be an Isonychia nymph hiding under a piece of grass.  In this picture: Arthropod Class Insecta (Insects). From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.

There's a very well-camouflaged Baetisca laurentina mayfly nymph resting on the twig in the bottom left corner of this picture. Can you spot him?  In this picture: Mayfly Species Baetisca laurentina (Armored Mayfly). From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.

This is a pretty clear photo of an Epeorus nymph clinging flat against a log. The big mound of debris on the bottom center of the picture, attached to the light rock, is a structure that's been puzzling me. I've found several in one section of the river. It's big, like 2 inches long and maybe 1/2-3/4 inch wide/tall, and hollow, like some sort of coccoon or something. It's clearly a structure built by some sort of little creature, but I'm not sure what.  In this picture: Mayfly Genus Epeorus (Little Maryatts). From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.
