pic: water strider's steps revealed

I thought this picture of a water strider, with ink on the water surface revealing the eddies from the bug's steps, is amazing. The photo is from the lab of John Bush at MIT; they've done cool studies to figure out how tiny insects get around on water, which has a much different feel to them at this micro-scale.
