Blue Tiger Beetle - Cicindelidia rufiventris
Lake Stanley Draper, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, USA
June 18, 2012
I found this beautiful little tiger beetle on an old dirt road about 100 yards from the shore at Lake Stanely Draper. It was about 1cm long and very dark blue. In natural light this guy looked almost black, but under the light from my camera's flash it was metallic blue. The underside of the abdomen was red.
