Water Bug

Our pond is full of frog spawn and tadpoles which are just little black bits with no legs at this stage, you can see billions of them underneath the bug. I love the way the way these bugs skim across the water, I thought they were called water boatman but have discovered they are not so now on the quest to discover what they are.

  2. When I was a kid, we called those "water striders.

    Yes, you need a macro lens. My friend has one, and gets the most amazing shots!
