A pond skater (family Gerridae), a common bug that lives on the surface of ponds. They feed on flies and other insects that fall into the pond, occasionally resorting to cannibalism. The body of this bug is so evolved as to afford a much greater degree of stability and control on the water compared to other insects.

Processed this one without any noise reduction. It does appear grainy in some parts, but I find it still very usable. Let me know your opinion.
Thanks, C&C welcome.
