    They look like rat-tailed maggots, which sound horrific, but are actually hover fly larvae and a definite good guy in the garden and pond 
  • Thank you Jellyfire,been googling all afternoon trying to find out what they were, glad they’re good guys

    They kind of look like small floating tampons.
