[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the first time that I had attempted to photograph this species of tiger beetle. I found many of them on the sandy beach but they were very wary and difficult to approach and they ran really fast. Would be happy if someone could ID this sp. for me.

Family: Carabidae
Subfamily: Cicindelinae

Hi Joe!
This is Abroscelis tenuipes araneipes (Schaum, 1863). The genus can be easy to recognize thanks very long legs.
Very nice picture of species (and genus!) first time presented in TN gallery!
Bravo and TFS!

PS. If you agree, I would like to add your picture to my theme "Cicindelidae of the world" :>
