High-speed footage of two whirligig beetles (family Gyrinidae) on the surface of a pond. Whirligigs are aquatic beetles that spend most of their time on the water surface, feeding on insects and other small animals. They can dive and swim underwater for a considerable time, breathing from a bubble of air trapped beneath their wing covers. Filmed in Wales, UK.
