Caption: Not sure what these are, I call them Water Spiders, but they look more like a cricket than a spider. They sit, run, and hop on top of the water.

I called them water skiers when I was a kid. They are fun to watch and scare. Excellent closeup. Makes me want to go back to my childhood again. -kevin :)

Excellent macro of this water skeeter. We have lots of them in MO. Was always amazed how they could stay afloat. Congrats

Great shot, Delana. Just like it had
pontoons.

We have some of these too and we just
call them Water Skippers.

Congratulations on your AC.

Water striders are such fun to watch. They have the latin name of gerridae, and some hatch in the water like mosquito larvae. Cool picture, Delana!
