These are really great pics. I have some comments:
- Tubifex worms have their head in the sand and TAILS in the air.
- Bloodworms are midge larva. Midge adults look exactly like mosquitos but they don't bite. Actually, midge larva are only one type of "bloodworm". Bloodworm is just a term for anything red that resembles a mosquito larva.
- The second mosquito pic with the big head, is ready to emerge as an adult.
- Can you find a pic of the mosquito eggs? They are a football shaped raft of dark brown, tube-shaped, slightly fuzzy eggs. Raft is about 4mm long.
