My kids found this water bug in our pond trying to net minnows. We live in Northeast Ohio. The bug gets air with its head and when it swims, it shoots water out of its butt like a squirtgun! Very interesting, do you have any ideas?
This is an immature Dragonfly known as a Naiad. It is pretty unique looking and it shouldn’t be too difficult to identify the species.
