Sidewalk Tiger Beetle - Cicindelidia punctulata

Sidewalk Tiger Beetle - Cicindelidia punctulata
Anderson Point Park, Wake County, North Carolina, USA
July 15, 2006
Size: 12 mm
Captured and posed, body length measured.
I know we have plenty of photos of this species already, but I thought this photo was worth sharing. I took a whole series of this beetle in a white plastic container. In this photo, the lighting worked out just right, even, but not too flat, showing the punctures on the right elytron well.
