I had some thing similar to this in my pond earlier this year and I thought it might be a back swimmer. This one was on a plant although I knocked it to the floor by accident
Quite an interesting thing close up
Yes. Back swimmer larger than the lesser Water boatman. They can be attracted by night lights and can fly out of the water.
They can bite.
Never seen one before this year- great stuff
I think these are a different family to the water boatmen and they swim the right way up. These swim upside down.
