you reproduced the colours of this species professionally.
Fine details are visible and the surface is nicely shown.
I think that the specimen is hardly visible when resting motionless on the ground.
Best wishes, Peter

This is a great dedication and I am very honoured by you! Thank you very much for so great presentatio :)
As I see you presented both sexes - male in main picture and female in workshop. It is good to see them in one place. I am also very grateful for showing a species which I known only from entomological collections and picture (I have never seen it in the wind, but who knows, maybe some day :>)
Note is short but gives intersting information.
Once again thank you for this great dedication!
Best greetigs and all the best in 2008 my Friend!
Ps. I added this picture to two themes: tiger beetles of Europe, and tiger beetles of the world :)

buena luz y un bello conjunto.

what a wonderful picture of a Tiger beetle, taken from straight above! Usually a beetle from straight above looks like out of a collection, but this one is full of life, colours and a gleam in the eye! I've never seen his species, it takes a specialist like you and Radomir to find and appreciate the beauty of these ferocious beasts. Good you dedicated it to cicindela!
My best wishes for the New Year, Marcello,
