Caption

Chironomus gnat larva. The chironomids or non-biting midges are a type of fly. They are sometimes known as bloodworms due to the red colour of some of their larvae. The larvae are aquatic, with the adult midges found near bodies of water. This larva is about to pupate, forming the pupal stage. Chironomid larvae reach lengths of about 1 centimetre.
