Yeah, or a pill bug. Cool shot... how'd you do it?

It's very cool shot. It looks like a floating bug or fossil - and curious as well how you did the shot

author says:

Thanks, it is indeed a pill bug, roly poly or wood louse, but not I believe a potato bug.
It was on a piece of glass over some coloured matter, on it's back trying to right itself. I flipped the image and really liked the way it looks like it's swimming.

Potato bugs are also known as Jerusalem Crickets...just found that out, thought I'd pass it on.
