Another poor photograph of what seems to be a caseless caddis fly and a stonefly?

Not sure what the "blobby" thing in the middle is, not enough detail. Possibly a caseless Caddis - Rhyacophilidae

The larvae on its side below it is a mayfly nymph, almost certainly Seratella (Ephemerella)ignita - the little pear shaped "worm" to the right is a Blackfly larva (Simulidae).
