Hello there!

Thanks so much for sharing your observation with VS! Nice job going out and exploring the streams around you --

It looks like you marked this as "whirligig beetle - not found," but -- at least to me -- it looks like it could be a whirligig beetle, both given your photos and your descriptions of its quick movements. Let me know what you think!

I love your photos and the observation overall. Great work documenting what you found!

Looking forward to learning a bit more, and thanks again for the upload!

Awesome awesome work!!

Best wishes,
Kansas
