Backswimmer

Notonecta sp.

Notes:

Water bug found mating, eating and floating. It often dives. Also, I watched one attack a struggling junebug, it jumped on top and then quickly got off. I believe it realized it was too big to eat, or it realized it wasn't what it thought it was. I wasn't able to get a picture of the fast interaction.
