  • Date photographed: July 14, 2012
  • Description: The photographer found this spider resurfacing from under the duckweed, floating a while, and then diving underneath the duckweed again. We believe the spider may be guarding an egg sac, as well (the brownish object she is holding in her chelicerae and under her body).
