Artist's Description

These interesting insects can walk on water. They have specially designed feet and legs that keep them on top of the surface. I like how their little feet make needle marks on the water, and I think it looks a bit like a quilt. Food for the bugs is other bugs that fall on the water and become dinner. When it is not mating season, water striders live in friendly communal groups and even share food.

Dedicated to the rare ability to walk on water!
