Thanks Cin , I did put a piece of slate under it and put it on dry land but it dived straight back into the pond amongst the plants and Algae out of sight! Much appreciated

Hello, I guess this should be in butterflies and moths now we know they are not sawflies, but I started posting here so... here are some final photos, I have now released the few I kept as I'm in mad busy mode and much as I would love to see them pupate and emerge, I just don't have the time to make sure everything is ok for them.
The caterpillars are about a centimetre long now. Hope these can help identify them:
