la cucaracha de verano

This isn't my video...but it could have been...
Since we had a break from the rain this morning, we decided to go swimming. But we didn't stay long because we saw one of these swimming beetles wandering around the bottom of the pool, and then skimming the top of the pool.

Ethan caught it in a swim mask and tossed into the bushes (he's good at catching creepy things for me -- frogs, geckos, spiders). But then we noticed there were several more wandering around inside the pool. They are about 2 inches big, and super fast. And totally creepy. So we got out and sat on the edge of the pool and watched a big one swim around for a while (the others seemed to like hiding in the crevices near the drains). It was like we were at an aquarium watching sharks.

They thought it was pretty cool, and totally educational :)
