Large Whirligig Beetle
Dineutus spp.
Taking this photo was quite a challenge. It is nearly impossible to take a photo of a moving target with a macro lens! I had to stand in the water at the edge of the lake to get this photo.
These interesting beetles have 2 sets of eyes, one set to see below the water, the other set to see above. They swim rapidly in circles in search of food on the surface of the water.
