Re: weird bug

  Your bug is most defintely a water boatman, or backswimmer (those are
the common names here in Alberta Canada).  I think they eat either
other aquatic insects, or dead organisms (bugs, fish, etc.).  They are
very common and well spread across the world - populating almost any
still water (there were a few hundred in a puddle in a parking lot here
in Edmonton).
