I'm a Six-spotted Fishing Spider
I'm usually found near the water's surface
I run on water and don't sink
It's how I eat and drink
And make insects, tadpoles and fish very nervous.

Location: Dee's office, Fellsmere (I have no idea how it got in my office. I suspect either David or I picked it up accidentally as a hitchhiker. I wasn't able to catch it, so I assume it is still living under my bookcase where it scurried to. Hopefully it is finding things to eat and doesn't need to be near water.)
