Cicindela sexguttata

Six spotted tiger beetle
This reignites my interest in trying to keep Cicindela and other tiger beetles :)
 
Dude... that's amazing!

The Aussie tiger beetle doesn't look quite that cool but a still awesome nonetheless, their grubs are often found in areas where lawn has died off in suburbs and they can burrow easily, but you almost never see that adult beetles
 
@dord Glad to hear bro! Their really awesome critters to observe, I've wanted to photograph one for the longest time since beginning invert photography. ;-)
 
Tiger beetle: "come over here bug, I just want to give you a kiss.....WHY ARE YOU RUNNING AWAY?"
 
@Ztesch Thanks man! These guys are endemic to North America (commonly found in deciduous forests in-between Minnesota, Rhode Island, Ontario and south to Kentucky)
