The Specimen

Cordulegaster Dragonfly NymphCordulegaster  Dragonfly Nymph View 4 PicturesThis is a realy big, dark dragonfly nymph. Notice how "fuzzy" it is--it's covered with small hairs that collect sediment and debris and camouflage the nymph to match its natural surroundings. The greenish cast in some of the photos of this specimen is due to strange lighting during my first night photographing things for this site.
Collected January 13, 2004 from the Namekagon River in Wisconsin
