Water Baby - Nic van Oudtshoorn

A baby Giant Waterbug (Belostomatidae family) hatches from one of many eggs glued to the back of the male by the female after mating. The male carried and cared for the eggs for about three weeks in a pond in our Jamberoo garden. Unhatched eggs can be seen around the hatchling.
