Tiger beetle

Tiger beetle
Georgia, USA
April 29, 2018
Size: About 2 cm
It is a tiger beetle for sure, I’m just not sure what kind. It is blue and green, little to no spots.

Getting good photographs is a
Getting good photographs is a challenge for me too. The specimen here reminds me a great deal of C. sexguttata. C. scutellaris also comes in green down there, but I don't think Georgian scutellaris have spots, plus they are more pudgy than the specimen shown.

pls make sure to include exact location and crop images tight
insufficient data is a major reason why images fail to attract expert feedback; expert also tend to skip images showing more background than bug

 
I’m not sure where I was in Georgia, and if I crop it any tighter the image gets so much worse you can’t tell anything from it and I’m afraid peaople with send it strait to frass.
