    Fabulous. A skater and its shadow!

    Hope that bug isn’t afraid of it’s own shadow!

  6. Cool capture, I have swarms of water spiders in, or should I say “on” my koi pond. They are a natural addition and always fun to watch.

    Interesting shot. I clicked on the photo trying to enlarge it and somehow connected to Pinterest offering “more like this.” Nebula shots and paintings showed up!

  14. I honestly couldn’t figure out what your picture was so I cheated and looked at the comments. Now I know it is a water strider. Cool composition, Eliza!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

    Took me a minute. ๐Ÿ˜€ … I thought it might be a collection of wormholes at the edge of space! ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. I had to look at this picture a few seconds before I realized what it was. A little slow on this sunny but cool spring morning. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Those elliptical dark areas are so distinctive that one would recognize them even without also seeing the insect that cast the shadows.

  18. Very cool, unique capture, Eliza! โค
