Very nice! Could this be an insect larva?

You are right. It seems to be a Midge Larva. I have corrected the title of the thread. Sorry.

Thanks for your comments!

I could be wrong, but I think it's a Chaoborus sp. larva
Their transparency gives them the name "ghost" or "phantom" larvae (phantom midge)
