Aquatic Insects of the Sausal Creek Watershed

The organisms depicted in these photos are common in the watershed.  They live in the creek, and they are hard to see under normal conditions; they are usually heavily camouflaged.  To see them, choose a rock in a region of the creek that has fast, but not turbulent water flow, flip it over, and look for something moving.  Or, take a white bin and fill it ¼ full of creek water, and place your rock in the tub.  The insects will slowly come out of hiding, and it is much easier to see them on a white background.
