Pond skater


This leggy specimen was one of several on the surface of the River Indre in the Loire region of France.

It was fascinating to watch them scooting across the surface of the water, especially as the reflections made them look even more weirdly leggier.

There are pond skaters in our garden pond but seeing them in a large expanse of river, along with the light reflected on the water, made it easier to see the indentation of their feet on the surface.
