Solitary CreatureWritten by D.M. Stanfield | | email@example.com
I spent much of Tuesday waiting for a call. Rather than sitting idly in front of a TV, I decided to go exploring along the Maumee River at Sidecut Metropark. Along the way I was fascinated by this solitary creature. A common miracle, the water strider takes advantage of physics to walk across the water’s surface in search of its next meal. It relies on its slender legs and the surface tension between water molecules to keep from getting wet.
