Subject: HELP IDENTIFY POND BUG
Location: Pond setting on bottom

Hi! I found these bugs on the bottom of my pond. There were about 40 or so of them huddled together. I looked online to see if their photo matches any other bug photo found online. The closest I got to were ”dragonfly nymphs”. If you could identify these bugs it would be appreciated. Thank you!

Dragonfly Naiad

Dear Puzzled Pond Owner,
You are correct.  These are immature Dragonflies and they are called Naiads, as are many aquatic insect nymphs.
