Neat Spider

I was out in the yard the other day and happened to look in the pool, and this is one of the creatures I found! I just love how his legs dent the water. Here’s more about how fishing spiders walk on water.

Update! I sent this picture in to What’s That Bug? and here’s the reply I got:

Hi Emmy,
Of all the species of Fishing Spider, the Six Spotted Fishing Spider, Dolomedes triton, is probably the one most associated with water and fishing. Your photo is truly wonderful and a study in symmetry.
