Watching the water at my local NR for a while, I became aware of many small bunches of vegetation moving beneath the surface. They're not easy to catch but eventually I got a shot with the culprit, a caddis fly larva I believe, protruding from the front end of its camouflage case. You can just see its head and a pair of legs in this picture.
