Gyrinus sp. (further ID suggestions welcome!)

Whirling beetles, or "whirligigs" are highly adapted for life on the water surface. Ever since I was a kid I've found them to be extremely fascinating in their ability to move rapidly on the water surface.

 

Stacked from 299 exposures in Zerene stacker.
