The Hidden World of Stream Insects

800 450 Stroud Water Research Center

For the past 35 years, Stroud Water Research Center Entomologist, David Funk, has collected and sampled macroinvertebrates in streams around the world. In the process, he has taken stunning photos of those insects using special equipment he developed for taking in-stream photos. Funk’s photographs have appeared in numerous books and magazines, including Natural History, Scientific American, Ranger Rick, National Wildlife, Wings (Xerces Society), BBC Wildlife, and Nature Australia.

On August 14, 2020, as part of Lancaster Water Week, Funk introduced a new audience to the natural histories of some of the most fascinating stream insects he has photographed.
