What a splendid capture of this Cicindela in a fine pose and from a nice low POV. Impressive sharpness and wonderful metallic colours even on the legs. Incredible jaws too!
Well done and much more fun than a 'boring' dragonfly!!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Great macro of Cicindels hybrida, a species of Tiger beetle we have in our area but I haven't seen it this year.
The Pose, DOF, sharpness and composition on sand are all excellent.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Hi old friend,
nice to see posts from you again. I hope you and your family are well.
This tiger beetle use to very fast almost impossible to get a
sharp shot of but you managed more than well.
Great sharpness with lots of details and the DOF are perfect,
the whole insect in focus. I really like the low POV.
Great work, Greg.

This Tiger Beetle, though lethal for flies, is a handsome creature alright, Greg.
An amazingly sharp and colourful macro of the subject from the most appropriate point of view.
The range of shining colours on the insect comes out vividly in this brilliant shot.
TFS and regards.

Excellent quality and superb shot with great focus. Well done Ganesh
Wow! What a beauty Greg - is it real?
I have NEVER seen an insect like this before. I love his multi colours and his hairy legs and shoulders and tummy. Nice and sharp too.
100% better than dragonflies and nearly as good as ducks.
Well done MF

the beetle has been shown many times on TN but your portrait is simply outstanding. The great poise! The beetles may do nothing as you say unless you want to ake a picture of them ...Extremely well done my friend! Thanks for the interesting note as well.

Pozdrawiam i obiecuje skomentowac rowniez pozostale 2 fotki tego zwierza :)
