I've had trouble being inspired by water striders. They sort of skate around on the surface of the water and that's about it. This photo is pretty interesting in that it's a clear head-on shot and includes a jeuvenile to the left and a teeny bug to the right of the adult's body. The underwater debris is also visually appealing/complex. The letterbox aspect ratio (2:1 here) is also interesting. I'll probably use it more in the future when it's warrented.
