Ground Beetle - Anisodactylus rusticus

Ground Beetle - Anisodactylus rusticus
Hampshire County, Massachusetts, USA
April 25, 2006
Size: ~1 cm
Captured in our yard, photographed and released. Composited from 3 images.

Carabidae: Anisodactylus rusticus
Took awhile before I was semi-convinced, but A. rusticus seems to be correct.

 
Thanks Donald,
I wonder if this shot from last year us the same genus/species?
