Excelente captura Thorsten, personalmente nunca había visto estos insectos.
Imagen inusual y muy estética con agradable atmósfera con adecuado POV y foco.
El efecto producido por las patas sobre la superficie del agua es muy atractivo.

Well seen, well done!
A very good shot, If I want to take one like this I must wait until summer, now there are a few minsects here.
The composition is good, showing the water superficial tension, the insect are well placed.
Don't you wet when you take it?
take care friend

I used to be fascinated with pond skaters as a kid so it is lovely to see such a great shot of them. Amazing details for something that is so small and actually quite quick. I love the way you have captured how they use the water tension. Lovely light and colours as well

it's a breat post, we can see very clearly how the legs makes small pits in the surface ot the water without breaking it.
Well composed, good POV and details.

This is really an amazing shot! Really!
I know how difficult it can be to capture these little guys since they allways move around all the time...you really did a great job!
Also great POV, giving a clear reflection on the water, makin the striders even more outstandind. Very good sharpness, framing and composition, too.
Bravo and TFS

This is a original catch. Not easy to take I guess. I think it is the first time I see those insects on TN :) Very good details, lightning, contrast and composition. I love the glow on the water. I'm surprise by the 1/60 seconds speed... Those I usually see always move... Very well done! TFS,

A neat and clear image with a very good angle to show the depression in the water as an alteration of reflection. Excellent note too wiht physics included.
Your shot bring me to my childhood when I swam in a river among lots of water striders.
Thank for the post.

Amazing to view these insects able to walk on water. It is not very sharp, but I know it should not be easy to capture this tiny little guys, and you may not able to approach them any closer, since they were on water. Therefore, you deserve all of the credits.
Have a nice weekend, friend.

I love the way you got two of the water striders in the frame - their details are excellent. What makes this image a A+ for me are actually the sunken leaves - take them away and the image is not as amazing.

If I had not started a theme, I would have to do it now after seeing this image. Unusual action photo.
