Looking carefully at the edge of the water, hoping to spot a turtle, a frog, or even some fish; I was surprised when I realized that these stealth little creatures were the cause of the ruckus on the water’s surface.

These insects were everywhere within the weeds and occasionally hung out in large groups such as this one in a clearing.
