Your letter to the bugman: Howdy man of bugs, I need help identifying this underwater creature. I found it under in my fountain resting on algae as I was tending to my pot in the garden. I carefully removed it from the water and placed in a dry surface to try and take photos. Out of water it remained calm. I put it back in it’s place after taking photos.
Please help BugMan!

Dear Underwater bug finder,
This is the larva of a Dragonfly. It is an aquatic predator that will feed on insects and other creatures in your fountain.
