A picture of a Water Strider
A water-repellent coat of hair covers the underbody and feet of the water strider, enabling the insect to move over water without sinking. Water striders move quickly over the water by propelling themselves with their middle set of legs. Most species live on still waters such as ponds, but one genus of water striders lives on ocean waters, maintaining its buoyancy over ocean waves and laying its eggs on seaweed. яндекс.ћетрика
