macro photo of a water strider
Yesterday I finally had the chance to head off with a net to a nearby slough to collect some more pond critters to photograph. I was specifically looking for either backswimmers or water boatmen—and of course I didn’t find any of either...
...but I did take collect a water strider to photograph.
I posted this picture and a few others on my blog this morning. I think this was my favourite, but it was a tough choice.
