Water insect
South Esk, Northumberland County, New Brunswick, Canada
July 16, 2019
Size: 1/4”
Never saw these before, there’s tons of them in my pool, when scooped up they whip around like crazy. They have little black dot eyes, pincers in the mouth and antennas on the head. 6 legs and 2 little needle looking things at the rear. Look black in the picture but they’re almost transparent in person.
