Six Spotted Tiger Beetle

Cicindela sexguttata


This was one of many moving out of my way as I walked along one of the trails on the West side of Huntley Meadows.


At this time of the year Six spotted tiger beeltles can be found on any of the trails in the park. This one let me get within a few inches with a macro lens.

Very nice, and good job convincing it to sit still! I hear you picked up the Raynox - I see you're doing good stuff with it! :)
