Moved from ID Request.

Maybe Brachinus?

Yes, Brachinus for sure
but this is a genus in which image-based identifications are difficult and unreliable in my opinion. Therefore, a physical study of the specimen under scope is the way to go if the photographer really wants a species name. I for one do except all Brachinus specimens under the photo-voucher agreement explained in my profile. Actually that offer applies to any photographed ground beetle specimen of North America.
