Mystery bug and a freshwater fairy shrimp

Here it is was Earth Day. I nod in Mother Nature's direction. She is brave, what with the things humanity has thrown at her.
It funny, but this morning, I thought of my dad. Every morning, when I was a girl, he'd come in and wake me up by saying, "Wakey, wakey time! Daylight in the swamp!"
The irony is we live on 16 acres, surrounded by a swamp, a wetland of about 9 acres!
These are the videos I made from my

Pond studies from Jennifer Jilks on Vimeo.
This is what I found in the frog pond! A mystery bug with egg sacks attached, as well as a freshwater fairy shrimp.
