Creighton, Northern, Saskatchewan, Canada August 4, 2013 Size: Body 18mm/Tail 14mm
I am not sure where to post these images...I thought maybe "Unidentified Tracks, Sign, and Other Mysteries' but there was no category for a thing like this. So I put it here. Anyhow I bought back a tub full of old horse/cow manure from the farm that I was going to compost and add to the garden. Well we have had quite a bit of rain and the large tub doesn't have any drain holes, needless to say for anyone who has been in a barnyard after a heavy rain the holes that the cows leave after walking around are filled with this brown tea colored water...well that is how this tub is and as I turn it with a shovel the hole fills up with the brown/tea water. Today when I went out I noticed something moving in the liquid. I scooped it out and got some shots of it. It doesn't move much in the container I have it in. It moves it's tail a bit and there is some movement from the mouth area. I have no Idea what this is or if it even belongs on bugguide. Does anybody have any ideas? Please Frass it if necessary.
