really adapted to its environment, well camouflaged and hardly seen when passing by. Neverthelesss, you discovered the specimen and succeeded to take a sharp close-up picture. Besides sharpness of the picture its attractivity is that the beetle really does not attract the eye although it has beautiful colour patterns and nice iridescent surfaces.
Best wishes, Peter
Czyzbys byl podobny do tego zwierza i stad Twoj pseudonim na TN? ;)
Ostro, czysto, wyraznie.
Well spotted Radomir.
This is an excellent capture of the Tiger Beetle.
Tack sharp details and great exposure.
It looks a lot darker than the Tiger beetles we get here in New Zealand.
Now you have it down to a science in this presentation. Very informative and well though tout. I notice you take your time and do not post just any what-not. You really do some thinking before you post. Good Job.

An excellent capture of this tiger beetle!
I like so much the clar and sharp details got with the help of the fill flash used.
This may be almost a black and white insect, only the slight coloration on the thin part of the legs make it the difference.
A very well balanced composition.
Congatulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
A nice capture of this beetle unfamiliair to me,you can indeed say it is well camouflaged in the dark BG,anyway you captured it with good detail and colors,tfs
Very nice macro picture. The image is very sharp and well exposed. Great that you spotted this Tiger Beetle in its natural habitat. TFS,
Great capture of this very impressive Tiger Beetle. Very interesting and sharp details and nice colours. A very fine composition and thanks for the interesting note.

Interesante imagen, con gran definición mostrandonos todos los detalles, excelente la luz y bonito el encuadre, TFS. Saludos
So the pseudonym cicindela you have adopted for TN comes from the name of this Beetle, Radomir :-).
I can't say "How appropriate!" unless you tell me why you chose it.
Coming to the picture, I must admit that this is the finest beetle picture I have ever seen on TN. Firstly, because it is technically matchless. Couldn't think of a better picture than that in terms of whatever is valued of utmost importance in macro imaging.
Secondly, the picture actually proves how this insect gets really assimilated into the surroundings -- the master of camouflage, indeed.
As usual, it is always fun to read your interesting and informative notes.
Well done and TFS.

a verty nice shot of this fast friend, I try to get a
decent shot of the Green Tiger beetle but they are too fast;-)
The details are very good and the DOF as well.
I really like the low POV.

Zdjecia sa tu wazne ale jak widac nie najwazniejsze. W tym wypadku na pierwszy plan musze postawic rewelacyjna notke. Z drugiej strony fotki trzyszczy to jest ciezki kawalek chleba :-) I rzeczywiscie to jest swietnie pokazany zakamuflowany trzyszcz. Moze swiaytlo lampy bylo troche za ostre. Ale ja czesto mam problemy z ocena zdjec zrobionych z lampa. Zawsze cos mi sie nie zgadza :-)

More classroom material from your labwork, I see. Excellent lecture note accompanied by a terrific photo. Very sharp and well lit. Must have used flash, no?
