I love finding caddisfly larvae!  They make the most amazing structures from leaves and rocks, plus they’re bizarre looking insects when you get them naked:

This photo gives me the impression of a cat, stoned out of its little furry mind on catnip, about to launch an attack on an unsuspecting passerby from its hiding place on top of a bookcase.  Can’t you just see it going, “AAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!” as it flings itself into your hair?  :)
