" it had a tail in the soil
he tried to dig it up but it was in pretty far in the soil.
so much so that a slight digging around, showed that it was more than a few inches in the ground.
It apparently stood up-right and was, with its abdomen and head was moving back and forth in a singular motion.
It never fully revealed itself, keeping it's tail securely fashioned in the ground "
phone conversation from my brother Christopher, who took the photos
Well I still can't tell from the picture, though I did zoom in a bit for other input, if it helps at all.
It looks like it has antennae curling back over it's head.
I guess what I meant was, do you have full size images that haven't been resized, or are those full size images?
It looks like a crustacean of some type to me.
I just wish I knew more!
Thats awesome that looks so much like it apparently. uhm, It was about 5 inches out of the ground, in some of the pictures you can see they tried to dig. nuts if thats what it is, thank you! still want feedback though, thats amazing you found pictures of something that could very well be it
ahahah no worries they're ugly but harmless.
they require healthy streams to grow in, so they mean your aquatic environment is looking good ;).
and you'll probably never see adults unless you leave your lights on at night.
they really aren't that bad.
the adults don't even feed.
the larvae are a popular fishing bait.
they have to have high oxygen levels to stay alive, so they mean your water is nice and healthy.
and you rarely see the adults since they are night fliers.
