I spotted this very large leech freely tumbling, and occasionally stopping, along the bottom of a clear, cool trout stream.  I paid careful attention later and spotted two more like it, but this one was the largest -- probably over 7 inches stretched out.

There is one other picture of it.  In this picture: Animal Class Clitellata-Hirudinae (Leeches). From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.

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 are a couple Epeorus mayfly nymphs clinging to this rock.  One interesting thing I've noticed is that even though the stream has a lot of clingers, they rarely show up in my photos, and I've started paying more attention to the river bottom while I'm fishing I've noticed that clinger nymphs generally see or feel me coming and scurry to the undersides of their rocks before I can get in picture range. I think I have the same problem with stoneflies.  In this picture: Mayfly Genus Epeorus (Little Maryatts). From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.
