A fishing spider (family Pisauridae) at the edge of a stream, waiting for a meal. These spiders stay in this position for a long time, monitoring the vibrations caused by prey animals (fish, tadpoles etc.) in the water below, using the sensitive hairs on their legs. On sensing a victim, they dash forward, grab it, envenomate it and then feed.
Deliberately used a slow shutter here because I wanted the motion blur of the legs on the water.
It may take a while to identify this one to the species level, will update accordingly when done.

Thanks, C&C welcome.
