Stone work

Well, this is definitely, at least to me, a new use for stones. It seems that according to the article entitled “The Fly Larva That Thinks It’s a Stonemason: Caddisfly larvae build themselves a protective house of stones with some of the stickiest sticky tape on Earth” by Lydia Chain over at Scientific American, we have a fly that also does stone work. All I can add is, from what I can see in the picture with the article, they do nice work.

Sincerely-
