photographing and learning about wildlife
What is this? On the roof of my garden shed, which gets full sun, I planted some rice as a project for my grandchildren. In about 3 cm of water above the soil in which the rice grows there were a number of these water insects? Are they mosquito larvae? The first photo shows one of them in a plastic tablespoon to give an idea of size. Next photo is a close up and the third shows the rice in a small trough. I flush new water in every day.
Ornamental party field.
