Not photographed very much, this is called an Oarsman or a Boatman, they look like a rowboat when they move. Around a half inch long, this one is upside down on a lilly leaf, (notice the bubbles) 60mm macro lens

One of my top encounters in 2013! This female manatee followed me around for 2 hours, photobombed us, really encouraging interaction. You're not allowed to touch...unless they initiate. I tried this selfie and she stayed with me. Priceless!
