Caddisflies are aquatic insects known for the cases they carry with them underwater. While not all caddisflies make cases, those that do use silk to knit together materials such as small rocks, small snail shells, bits of wood, pine needles, or grasses into long tubes that wrap around their bodies. Because they have a case covering the bulk of their length, they have long abdomens with hooks at the end (used to hold onto the case as they drag it around) and their legs all bunched up together at the front. ⠀⠀
I know I’m totally making things up, but I love the way this one looks like a cat that’s dive bombing someone off the top of a bookcase. Ayyyyyeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
