[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another picture with Pentacon 29 (m42) and with one Kenko extension tube (20mm). This was taken yesterday on my sister's pond.
The water strider (also known as the pond skater) is a true bug that can run across the surface of water. It lives on ponds and slow-running streams. It rarely goes underwater. Water striders eat small insects that fall on the water's surface and also larvae (immature insects). Water striders are very sensitive to motion and vibrations on the water's surface.

Hi Lukasz,

Siemka Kaszek!
Akurat tego typu zdjecia lubie najbardziej. Woda, wodny owad, liscie podtopione, na pewno daloby sie wylowic stad 1000 roznych organizmow. Swietna jakosc, chyba najlepsze zdjecie nartnika jakie widzialem.
