Predaceous Diving beetle

22 July 2020

This beetle was discovered in one of the rain barrels around our house in Underwood. These creatures can also fly! Some evenings while we are sitting around our pond, right at dusk, some large insect flies out of the water. It is always too dark to see what it was. We suspect it may be one of these beetles.
