Creek Critters

Photos by Ned Harris 6/10/2015

This critter may look like a bit of debris, but she's actually a Backswimmer. These insects inject their prey (other insects, and even tadpoles and small Gila Chub) with digesting enzymes and suck out the resulting goo. Yum.

This little tadpole (most likely a soon-to-be Canyon Tree Frog) might want to swim away...
