Spiders are among some of the most amazing, adaptable and versatile predators on earth. It might not seem like they could be masters of hunting on the water, but one group in particular has mastered this very difficult habitat. Water Spiders, as the name suggests, can hunt creatures both on and underneath the water. Unfortunately, while I have always been excited to see one of these spiders for myself they are extremely elusive. One night, while walking at a creek nearby where I live, I heard an unusual pitter pattering sound. Upon checking it, I saw this incredibly spectacular spider pouncing of into the water below a footbridge!
