Water Strider in Kanchanaburi Thailand

Water striderI took this photo in a reservoir in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, a province in western Thailand. After doing some research I find that water Striders are flat and long without wings, and easy to identify by the second and third pairs of legs that are almost twice as long as their bodies. To make them float on water, their legs have tiny, water-repellent hairs that hold tiny air bubbles, allowing them to skate on the surface of the water. I thought this photo turned out pretty cool, let me know what you think…
