4 Underwater Picture of Brachycentridae Caddisflies:
"Apple Caddis" struggled more than its kin in escaping its pupal skin, enabling me to take an underwater picture of it from directly below. This is sort of a trout's eye view, but I used the flash for the picture so the transparent shuck (Shuck: The shed exoskeleton left over when an insect molts into its next stage or instar. Most often it describes the last nymphal or pupal skin exited during emergence into a winged adult.)
appears far brighter than it really is.In this picture: Caddisfly Species Brachycentrus appalachia (Apple Caddis).
