Cool catch Larry. Hard to get one sitting still for a pic.

The water almost looks like ice. Nice sharp capture.

Totally agree. These Water Striders are very active. They're a favourite meal for Wolf & Fishing Spiders - the real 'water spiders' who run out on the water surface to catch the striders. With their larger and heavier bodies, though, the spiders have to use their bodies like a pontoon. Very nice shot!

Nice shot!! I've tried this with zero success.
