Water Flea with eggs - Daphnia pulex - This most common species of water flea belongs to the family Daphiniidae. It has a cosmopolitan distribution in a wide range of aquatic habitats, although it is most closely associated with small, shaded pools and lakes of an oligotrophic nature. (Their range extends across most of the world - Americas, Europe & Australia - in appropriate habitats, most of which offer little by way of nutrients)

Caterpillars are the larval form of members of the order Lepidoptera (the insect order comprising butterflies and moths). They are mostly herbivorous in food habit, although some species are insectivorous.
