Hi David,
This is a Predatory Water Bug and it has many of the same common names as the more commonly photographed genus Lethocerus, including Giant Water Bug, Electric Light Bug and Toe-Biter. This is however a different genus, Belostoma. Males of this genus carry the eggs which the female cements onto his back.
