Whirligig Beetle

Gyrinus sp.


The whirligig beetles feed on items falling onto water and are often seen in mumbers frantically charging about on the surface of streams, ponds and lakes, rarely stopping. They have two pairs of eyes, the lower pair for seeing underwater and the upper pair for seeing above the water surface.


Springs of Acheron river.
