Velia caprai Water Cricket,03 04 12

Velia caprai - Water Cricket

Hi,had a stroll up Gorpley Clough,lots of the very common Water Crickets,heres a pic of one although only 8mm its only when you look closer and notice they are quite colourful,at rest the two middle legs hardly touch the surface of the water,but as soon as a tasty morsel lands on the water surface those middle legs provide fast propulsion across the surface.regards Bri
