Name this Beetle

On April 7th I found 2 of these gorgeous beetles. They look like a type of water beetle. Does anyone know who this guy is? What is their behavior?  
This link is to a dropbox file of 3 pictures of this beetle:

that looks like

I think it's a Predaceous Diving Beetle. They can bite, which can actually draw blood. So make sure you don't step on them while barefoot.
