Alright, here's where we will post and store our insects photos instead of having them in individual posts. Will make it easier for us all when looking fr reference photos for imitating a particular bug. So keep posting insects photos here. I will move some photos here that has alreade been posted else where in this section of the forum.

Adult mayflies, probably Baetis. The lighter one is a female and the darker (probably) a male

A friend of mine just send me these two fantastic looking photos of a newly hatches Ephemera Vulgata. Look at the empty nymf skin hanging just below the surface!
Great stuff!

Not a clue what it is. Me and Steve had 2 of them crawl under the tying table out side under a canopy during that 5 1/2" rain storm. It has feet like a mole and a abdomen like a Stonefly LoL!

Hey Wicked, pretty close.

I think that is a mole cricket. And by the way uffe, the caterpillar is a millipede actually. And if you ever pick one of those up, careful because they will secrete/spray some nasty stuff, I know....Cool pics nonetheless.

Yep, did a quick search Wicked, check this link for some pics of his cousins as well. http://www.pestprodu...ts_pictures.htm
