Fishing Spider, possibly from genus Dolomedes hunting, probably for tadpoles, as I don't see any fishes in the stream I saw them.
Shallow stream and semi-stagnant pool.
The shadow of the spider creates a nice flower/petal/leaf effect. Despite the pointed legs of the spider, the shadow is actually of the depressed water around the legs.
