Central American Montane Tiger Beetle

Pseudoxycheila tarsalis

Notes:

These beetles move quickly and like to hide in dark nooks and under forest floor detritus. They don't care to be photographed :-)

Nice capture, these guys really don't stand still, so it's difficult to get nice sharp photos like these.
