[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note


The caddisflies are insects with approximately 12,000 described species. Also called sedge-flies or rail-flies, they are small moth-like insects having two pairs of hairy membranous wings. They are closely related to Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) which have scales on their wings, and the two orders together form the superorder Amphiesmenoptera. Caddisflies have aquatic larvae and are found in a wide variety of habitats such as streams, rivers, lakes, ponds, spring seeps, and temporary waters (vernal pools). The larvae of many species make protective cases of silk decorated with gravel, sand, twigs or other debris. The name "Trichoptera" comes from Greek: θρίξ (thrix, "hair") + πτερόν (pteron, "wing").(Wikipedia)

I don't know the exact species, eventually Oligotricha striata.

Your notes though short are EXACT and TO THE POINT.
Quite an education, indeed!!!
The image too is superb showing a lot of details e.g. "hairy wings".
You are a dedicated supporter of TN thereby leaving for posterity just a little bit more knowledge about our world which is now being heavily polluted. Often wonder for how long will MAN go on this destructive rampage???
Warm regards from COLD COLD Canada from Mario.

Hello Anne,
What a fine looking macro image of this little Caddisfly. The focus is tac sharp allowing us to view it's features and colors in excellent detail. Perfectly exposed and exhibiting superb DOF.
I remember once being completely covered from head to toe by these little insects while fishing up at Lake Erie.
Great job!!

Alors bravo
