I made myself a small three inch square aquarium and I go across the street and catch small pond critters and place them in and take there pictures, it can be pretty interesting what you get.

This is one from today a portrait of a Giant Water Bug, he/she was too big for the micro aqaruim so I couldn't get a full body shot.

One of my favorites a Water Tiger which is the larval stage of the Giant Diving Beetle.

I find pond life to be fascinating, and Martin, you've really put some amazing images together. What a great idea, to make your own pond with clear sides!

I gotta tell you though, that water tiger gives me the creeps!

But the shots are fantastico!
