So schnell war ich noch nie mit meinen Kommentaren. Fast so schnell wie der Sandlaufkäfer! Schöne Darstellung auf dem sandigen Gérine-Ufer. Bemerkenswert ist die Farbigkeit der Beine, die ich an Ort nicht gesehen hatte. Erinnerung an einen wunderschönen Tag.
Funny story, but please believe me - I understand you perfectly! :> These little creatures are more than difficult to photograph :>
Anyway, nice to see your final effect, this little lady (as it is a female) looks really nice. I like almost frontal POV, thanks to this it is really easy to see that this is C. hybrida (very characteristic shape of labrum as you know).
Thank you for showing this beetle and thank you also for compliments. It is really a great pleasure to know that anyone can find anything interesting in my presentation :)
All the best from Lodz Dietrich and I am waiting for next picture from your meeting with Anne and Markus! :)
PS. If you agree I would like to add this picture to 2 themes: tiger beetles of Europe and of the world :)

Excellent capture of this cicindela. Excellent POV to see the head in detail. Great sharpness and I like very much the iridescent colours.

Thank you very much for this picture and the kind words about our meeting. It's a pleasure to remember it, we had a great day together, although I don't have many photographical results to present. I still have to learn what macro photography is made of. All I know is that you and Anel are masters... This picture is one proof among many!

A great macro of C. hybrida taken from an excellent POV to show the labrum, jaws and other aspects of the head with fine sharpness. This is an inspiration for me to look for it here near my home where it has a small population.
Thanks for sharing this and I hope to see more from your TN meeting!
Best regards, Ivan

A superb photo of this little beast. I've tried a few times to photograph Tiger Beetles here, and they are so active that I have yet to get a good image of one, so congratulations, it's quite a feat to get a shot like this one.

auch ich habe diese Tiere mit meiner Kamera - oft erfolglos - verfolgt, auch in den Tropen, da scheinen sie noch fixer zu sein als hier in Europa. Klasse Bild. Manchmal muss man erfinderisch sein.
Great title, I like em' short & sweet ;}
And the POV couldn't be much better to fit this theme either..
You've picked up all those subtle color variations on the beetle too, Nice!
Excellent DOF, details, comp, and use of flash to fill.
Very well done,
PS - I'm gonna have to get out there & pick on some bugs soon too :)
