Amazing detail and beautiful colours!
Well done,

Good capture Jan.
I shot tiger beetles on my trip to Thailand, didn't know you got them in Europe too.
Great sharpness and DOF.

Hello Jan!
I almost overlooked this picture! :)
Vey nice close-up of nominative subspecies of Cicindela campestris (only this one is present in Czech Republic). DOF and details are really nice, maybe only the head-part of beetle is placed in to shadow place :)
Anyway, I really like this picture :)
Greetings from someone who likes tiger beetles a lot! ;>
