The water louse is a common species found in many still and slow flowing aquatic habitats (including polluted ones), but it is not photographed very often, even when compared to other pond creatures. This is probably due to their habit of diving for cover or the corner of the photographic aquarium. Last winter I tried putting in some dead leaves in the aquarium and managed some shots (see here) So I tried the same trick again last week and got the following shots.
