Found in a sweep under a lily pad using an aquatic net. Placed in a styrofoam container and then a clear plastic container for the photos. In the containers, it was normally swimming on its back (white side down) but sometimes turned over and even tried to climb out of the container water. Returned to the pond after the photos.
