ID help on beetle?
I’m a birdwatcher so bugs are not my forte, but when I spotted this shiny-green beetle with whitish spots and I had my camera with macro lens handy I had to take a shot…and now I want to know what it is…can you help?
This is a Tiger Beetle. More specifically, it seems to be a Six Spotted Tiger Beetle, Cicindela sexguttata. We are not sure why it is called the Six Spotted Tiger Beetle as most specimens appear to have 8 spots, and some have none.
