Dolomedes plantarius is a large semi-aquatic spider living around water. It can hide or swim under water (once I saw a spider hide for 20 minutes under water). It belongs to the family Pisauridae - Nursery web spiders.
In this video you will see it booth over and under water, catching prey, carrying egg sac, guarding spiderlings in its nursery web.
