Hi,
Just wanted to share this picture of a fishing spider… he was in our neglected pool. I love how his legs dent the water!

Hi Emmy,
Of all the species of Fishing Spider, the Six Spotted Fishing Spider, Dolomedes triton, is probably the one most associated with water and fishing.
Your photo is truly wonderful and a study in symmetry.

Update  from Eric Eaton
Daniel:
I agree that image of the fishing spider is just gorgeous!  Deserves to hang in a gallery.
