Caddisfly, larval quiver


Caddisfly larvae built their sheltering homes, their quivers, with material they find within their direct regional habitat. That leads to ever changing appearances of it from region to region. This one was active in a pond nearby, usual marshy/wetland surroundings of the northern hemisphere of Europe.

I agree, Dan, Lars would fit well in a Wim Wenders movie.

Hahaha, was just searching it. Wow, amazing! They really do collect anything they can find. I'm going to keep an eye out for them when I get home.

Gorgeous spotting Lars! If found them in the wild, maybe I just thinking its a kind of falling leaves!
