Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions sent us this very cool under water video of mostly hendrickson nymphs, and a few other Genus Ephemerella nymphs. The hendrickson nymphs, Ephemerella subvaria, are easily identified by the three light, mid-abdominal segments, and two dark bands on the tibia of each leg. The end of the film give us a water's edge view of an adult male hendrickson - a red quill to us fly fishermen.

Neat stuff, and Tim tells us that he intends to take aquatic insect samples from the South Branch of the Raritan River on a weekly basis and photograph them. Something to look forward to, look for updates here in the coming weeks.
Thanks Tim, we look forward to more great shots.
