I've seen a spider scooting about on the water, emulating Pond Skaters, before but am not confident enough about identification. This character appears to have the colouration of a Water Spider (tan thorax, greyish abdomen but that may be down to an air-bubble) but Chinery seems to say that Water Spiders live below the surface all the time.

Does this picture provide enough for a positive id., anyone?
