Water Beetle?


My daughter saw this fellow slip out of the garage eavestrough and tumble into the back alley. It seemed to be a water beetle somewhat misplaced from its proper habitat. We put it into a bucket with water and it seemed quite at home swimming around. Any guesses on what type of beetle specifically?

That's a diving beetle. cool! I've always heard that they inflict painful bites, but the web says no. http://www.beneficialbugs.org/bugs/Diving_Beetle/diving_beetle.htm
