[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
...Beetle, Cicindela hybrida. Look at those jaws, and you'll get the feel for why it's called a Tiger Beetle. A sand-dweller if there is one, it is always on the hunt for insects of all kinds in the sunny, dry places where the larvae also burrow. Rather common in coastal dunes and inland sandy areas.

Excellent macro Philippe, most unusual insect. Very well done.

Hello Philipe, Nice macro with some good details and sharpness within your DOF. No basic camera data? F stop? shutter-speed? TFS

Bel insecte dans cette composition photographique. Jolies couleurs, bon point de vue. La profondeur aurait mérité d'être plus grande...
Beautiful insect & nice macro !
