... to see if there are interesting animals to photograph since the weather really feels more like exciting early spring than the sleepy winter ... and in fact, there was plenty of activity in and around this water ...

... insect larvae were swimming near the surface, some were breathing the air through the organ called siphon, situated on the posterior end of the body ...
