← Insects are scared to death of fish

Alan, sorry I was fooled by the picture of an adult dragonfly in the OP! As a result of the picture, I didn't notice that the text said they were using nymphs, which you rightly say are aquatic. Therefore, the problem remains one of the inherent ambiguity of the term "stress". AFAIK, it is still not known whether insects suffer from too much worry, or whether predatory fish poison their prey slightly.
