Notonecta sp. Notonectidae. Hemiptera.
Seguramente se trata de la especie Notonecta glauca, aunque no tengo total seguridad.
Su longitud no suele superar los 15 mm. Lleva plegadas sus alas delanteras o hemélitros.Sus patas anteriores son prensiles y las posteriores, en forma de remo, están bordeadas de pelos para facilitar la natación. Nada con el dorso hacia el fondo y asciende frecuentemente a la superficie para renovar la reserva de aire que almacena bajo sus alas. Vuela bien y a menudo se desplaza de una charca a otra.
Su picadura es muy dolorosa !!
Es un temible predador succionador y se alimenta de insectos, crustáceos, alevines y renacuajos.
Vive en charcas de fondo cenagoso y lo tenemos presente en toda Europa excepto en el Norte de Escandinavia.

Wonderful capture, Josep!

Your picture has all the qualities to make it look great - lighting, sharpness, colors and details. In first look it looks so mysterious that one has to pay attention to see what it is.

Thanks for sharing!

Hola Josep,

Marvellous capture of the Notonecta with great sharpness and taken from a great POV.
The shallow DOF works very well here. The details are superb! The contrast between the dark colors of the Notonecta and the nlurred dull colored BG, is superb.
Well seen!

thanks and regards,

Hello Josep !
I really like this picture, because even if I know the Notonecta is swimming on the water, I have the impression, on the photo, that he is floating in the air. it is unusual, but beautiful. The details on the insect are outstanding, also, and the soft warm colors are a eal pleasure for the eye. Very well done !
Valérie.
