What is it?
We live in Provence in the south of France. We found this bug in the grass on Saturday morning. Do you know what it is, we could not id it from our books? We think it rather beautiful though.
Several months past we received an image of this lovely Ground Beetle from Vermont, and at that time we were unaware that Carabus auratus had been introduced to the U.S. Thanks to you, now we have a lovey photo of it on its native soil.
