Hello Art!
First of all - my best congratulations! It is not easy to photograph Cicindelidae in the wild. These beetles are so fast that a lot of patience is needed. I agre with your ID, this female looks like Cicindela fulgida.
If you agree I would like to add this photo to theme "Tiger beetles of the world" :>

PS. If you like Cicindelidae, please feel free to look here, this is the last part of my tiger beetle saga, there are also links to earlier presentations :)

Hi Art!

Yeah, great face to face picture of dangerous predator. As Radek said - it is very hard to capture, especially from this POV. Good work!
