    Skeeters

    Found these mosquito larvae in a bucket of water. Been hoping the mommas would lay their eggs in it and they finally did. I'll take more photos when they turn into pupae, and if I'm lucky, I'll get to witness an adult mosquito hatching. I got them in a closed container, no worries about escapees

    Ewww... if you pour bleach on them, they just dissolve. (I had to clean out containers at an animal and science center, and used a weak bleach solution on things that were particularly nasty)

    That is some INTENSE macro photography! Your photos show such detail, and kinda make the little devils look cute... :P Good luck spotting them hatching; are you going to try and capture them on tape when they hatch?

    It would be awesome if I could record a video of one of them emerging from the water. I have video of them just wriggling around, I'll have to upload that to youtube.
