Missed the shot but got the action

Using Mondays sunshine to eek the last interest out of summer I stood by Banks Pond trying to add to the species list. I aimed at a Water Boatman and took the shot only to find it had dived at that precise moment.
Far more interesting than the shot I was trying to get.
This aphid (?) appeared to be traveling rapidly across the water but on closer inspection was hopefully dead and being propelled by the little bugs taking chunks out of it.....nice.

  1. Wonderful shot of the diving water boatman! You can see the force generated by its oars by the ripples on the surface ...... brilliant.
