Odonata nymphs (naiads)
Tiny first instar babies found in the water dish of our dog in the garden. They were about 2 mm long and didn't have much of any antennae. Just hatched Dragonfly larvae (naiads). http://corangamite.landcarevic.net.au/to....
Garden, San Cristobal de Las Casas, 2,200 meters.
A Dragonfly must have put her eggs in the water dish and they all hatched. There were about 25 babies in the dish, at the bottom. I feel badly because I didn't know what they were and didn't realize they were aquatic and alive. I thought they had fallen in from a bush and had drowned. I poured the water onto a plant. Poor babies.
