Here is one that is creative in its simplicity. The dumbell eyes might be a bit unique to a stonefly pattern, as well. I don't think I have seen that before. I call it the bug-eyed stone. Materials are obvious and substitutable.

 

Image hosting isn't woring for me, so here is a link to a thread I posted on the pattern:
