If you’re wondering what those floating creatures on ponds, sea, or stagnant waters are, they’re called Water Striders or Sea Skaters. With their tiny bodies and thin legs, they freely float on the water’s surface. According to The National Wildlife Federation website, their legs have microscopic hairs that repel the water and capture air, thus, allowing them to walk on water’s surface.
