CONFLICTS IN A POND
This is the unusual story of a little-known insect : the water beetle.
Having spent the winter beneath the ice, the water ,beetle which can walk, swim, and fly, stirs with the first signs of spring. Its habitat : a small pond. Its neighbors : dragonflies, frogs and newts. Its daily life : survival. Between two skirmishes, it gives birth to some twenty larvae of varying kinds…only the most voracious will make it to adulthood before the pond dries out.
