Insect larva feeding. High-speed microscope footage of the aquatic larva of an unidentified insect feeding on detritus. The camera pans down to show the digestive system of this transparent larva, from the mouthparts at the top to the anus at the bottom. Many insects deposit their eggs in, on, or near water. The larva is the second stage of insects that undergo complete metamorphosis. It hatches from an egg and precedes the pupa and adult forms.
