caddis fly spawn

By dannybeath      
this weird egg mass was laid by a caddis fly on the end of a leaf over shallow water. the eggs hatch out and eventually drop into the water below them.
i found this in severn pond nature reserve near welshpool

nice image and I love that little sparkle of light on it. Great detail and colouring accompanied by a great description.
