Every picture of this specimen was taken with my old camera through a microscope.
This water boatman was collected from Fall Creek on November 15th, 2004 and added to Troutnut.com on April 12th, 2006.
I really like this view through the microscope of a water boatman's mouth and metallic-looking compound eyes (Compound eye: The eyes of many arthropods, including insects and crustaceans, are composed of anywhere from 12 to 1,000 facets called ommatidia. These are called compound eyes.)
