Cicindela campestris , commonly called the green tiger beetle is a widespread Eurasian species of tiger beetle. It is divided into several subspecies


La Cicindela campestris è un Coleottero di medie dimensioni (14 - 15 mm), con livrea colorata di verde brillante, a volte con riflessi bluastri, con due macchie biancastre sulle elitre. La Cicindela campestris vive al margine dei boschi e dei coltivi, negli arenidi e nelle zone sabbiose, comunque in ambienti soleggiati. È una vorace predatrice di molti insetti; gli adulti cacciano e predano direttamente, le larve, invece, stanno nascoste sotto la sabbia, o comunque nel substrato, e predano gli insetti terricoli di passaggio. L'attività predatoria si svolge tra marzo e settembre. Dal punto di vista applicativo della lotta biologica non riveste grande importanza, tuttavia negli ecosistemi naturali contribuisce a mantenere l'equilibrio ecologico tra la specie.

Ehi!..Roby, bello questo insetto, con una variopinta livrea dai colori brillanti, metalizzati. Eccellente la nitidezza e superbi i dettagli: riesce a risaltare magnificamente contro il fogliame.
Splendida luce. Composizione e presentazione eccellenti.
Complimenti.
ciao! Vanda

Ciao Roberto, co tutto sto verde in circolazione hai fatto un piccolo miracolo a renderla così bene, splendida nitidezza e magnifici dettagli, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Roberto,
Maybe a little UE and over-sharpened, but a fine capture of this Green Tiger Beetle showing most of the features with fine details from a dorsal POV.
At the end of April we can also see it in Sweden.
Thanks and kind regards,
Ivan

Hello Roberto,
I like tiger beetles and this one is a beauty. I like it pose here (where we don't see the nasty jaws!) and details and colours are excellent. Unusual to see it among the grass, here they run about on the sand.
TFS and best regards, Ulla

Hi Roberto,

Very good record of this fine bug specimen, and that's where it must stay,

when using photo-shop don't fall into the trap of over sharpening your image, or any other features of P/S,

But to be honest with you, your centre of interest (the bug) blends into the background so much, that its hard to identify one from the other,

This is a friendly critique,
Regards,

Pauly.

Ciao Roberto, ennesima ottima ripresa di questo strano insetto. Perfetto.....come al solito lo sharpness ed i dettagli. Un saluto, Paolo

Ciao Roberto,
Piacevolissima la composizione e la cornice bianca di questa foto valorizza le lucentezze dell'insetto. Bella l'ambientazione naturale ed i colori.
Nitidezza? Non ci sono dubbi: perfetta come sempre!
Ciao
Manuel
