Big pinchers lurking in a small hole - 1

Big pinchers lurking in a small hole - 1
Baton Rouge, Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, USA
October 11, 2017
Hole about 1/4 maybe 3/8 inch in diameter.
In a seldom used, mowed path thru a meadow.
Very wary and go out of sight down the down at any movement.
Note 2 pairs of eyes on each side of the head.
The upper eye of each pair is somewhat larger than the one below it.
It seems to have a shield over the head that fills the hole area. See better on the second individual.

Tiger Beetles at Bluebonnet Swamp
I added more details in a Flickr Album called "JEH Workbook for Tiger Beetles at Bluebonnet Swamp". It has info on both our adults and larvae.
