Purple-rimmed Carabus (Carabus nemoralis) - Carabus nemoralis

Purple-rimmed Carabus (Carabus nemoralis) - Carabus nemoralis
Fort McMurray, Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, Alberta, Canada
September 14, 2011
Size: ~23mm
I found this Carabus beetle while filming an environmental video in the woods with my friend Alex,so I packed it up for photographing later.

As far as I can tell this is a purple-rimmed carabus beetle, although it is the rarer "green-rimmed purple-rimmed carabus" if I'm not mistaken.
