This seems to be a popular insect at the moment and I think you're lucky to find one!
Superb macro showing all details very sharply and the metallic colours are stunning. A fine composition too!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Excellent close-up capture of this interesting Tiger Beetle with good composition and POV, sharp details and bright natural colours.
I'm really glad that my picture inspired you to take closer look at tiger beetles. This picture is really good - tiger in typical hunting pose, very sharp and detailed with well visible shinning parts of its body. I hope you had got fun observing these interesting creatures!
you must know this and that is you have surprised me with this photo you have uploaded today.I never knew of such a beetle let alone ever seen one and to think that an insect this fascinating lives right here in High River- simply outstanding,Art.The thing this photo conveys is colour and with your sharp and so very clear focus,I'll never mistake this insect for any other.How large or small is this fascinating creature and where in town did you see it,if you don't mind me asking ?Thanks ,Art for sharing this most interesting little creature.You are creating macro magic with each passing day.
