western Red Damsel nymph?
Yellowstone National Park, Mammoth Terraces, Park County, Wyoming, USA

This nymph was very active in a stream of water only about one foot wide and coming off Orange Springs Mound. The water is full of calcium carbonate and the nymph appears to be covered with algae. I believe the adults in the area are w. red damsels. See my Bug Guide submissions # 1366238 and BG # 1366244

Moved from Dragonflies.

it's not a damselfly of any kind.
