Tiger Beetle

Tiger Beetle
Wright's Lake, El Dorado County, California, USA
August 1, 2019
Size: 1/2 inch + or -
I observed a small Tiger Beetle alongside the creek that flows out of the south end of Wright's Lake.

Tiger Beetle
On July 8, 2016 a Tiger Beetle from the same location as this one at Wright's Lake, El Dorado County, CA was ID'd as Western Tiger Beetle and it looks the same as this one. Just saying.

I know that's a common species out west, but I'm not great at IDing western tiger beetles. One of the experts will come along and move this record as needed.

Moved
Moved from Beetles.
