Nature notes and photos from BC, Canada, mostly in the Lower Fraser Valley, Bella Coola, and Vancouver Island.
I love the surprises of spring! I have a query for you.I'm trying to identify a bug. Can you help? It's all very exciting examining the minutia.
That's a lovely photograph.
Jennifer, If the one you're wondering about is the "mystery bug", what you've got is a large, female copepod, with her two egg sacs.There's a photo of a similar one here.Good shot! Those critters are hard to get; they move so quickly.
I love it!!!
