Default Buzzer Pupa and Adult

First time I've seen a buzzer with breathers, think this one was having problems hatching, vigorously wriggling in the surface as he drifted by. I don't usually bother with tying breathers on my buzzer patterns but think I'll start, they really stood out.

After fishing noticed a cloud of these big buzzers, size 10. Don't think the above pupa hatched into one of these as it was smaller, size 12/14.

Great pics,
Had a little laugh to myself yesterday when one of our regulars picked a buzzer pupae from the water and said to all those assembled " how the ******* hell am I supposed to imitate that".

Sorry I am late to this picture. The breather tubes are really distinctive. Possibly more so than the wing buds. I have been thinking that I may have to change my tying. The other distinctive part that caught my eye were the body segments. Winter project coming up.

Shipmans have always been one of my favourite patterns for this exact reason. Thanks for posting the very clear pictures of the struggling pupae. Off to tie some more based on it.
