Found this bug next to the pool, it was not frightened of water and used its two back legs to rub the water off its back. The two large pincers at the front were also used for walking.

Dear Emma and Maz,
We are thrilled to post your photo because we haven’t received an identification request for a Water Scorpion in quite some time.  Water Scorpions are aquatic True Bugs that reportedly have a very painful bite.
