Caddisfly Larva


caddisfly larva, originally uploaded by heatherkh.
This is from Heather at her Flickr Photostream. I have never seen or even heard of one of this guys before. This is apparently a Caddisfly larva. " The cased caddisfly larvae builds a protective housing, providing it with weight (ballast) and a defence against predators. Depending on the habitat and species of caddisfly, the case itself is made from small pieces of sediment or debris, held together by modified saliva." ( thanks to Slapton Ley, Bringing Environmental Understanding To All)

These beautiful bugs are the creation of Halima Washington. Halima is an artist who lives in Atlanta, Georgia and paints with a combination of a palette knife and a brush. She "loves using the impasto technique because she wants the viewer to be aware of the paint and her passion for it and  wants people to see everyday ordinary objects and surroundings as extraordinary". Halima has a beautiful blog SMALL WORKS that is full of her magnificent pieces of work. If you're lucky enough to live in Atlanta Halima teaches at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center and has her work available at the Anne Irwin Fine Art Gallery.
