Caption: Whirligig beetles. Swarm of whirligig beetles Gyrinus substriatus, swimming on water. The silhouette shapes of these predator beetles are seen as they zig-zag past one another; here they create interference patterns on the water surface tension. Whirligig beetles (family: Gyrinidae) are distributed worldwide.
