365 Theme 73: Cutlery


A rather impressive set of cutting instruments is sported by this six-spotted tiger beetle. Which, curiously enough, has eight spots. Larger version here.

Very clever capture for the theme. He has spectacular coloring.

How luminous he is. Those little white jaws look that they could do some damage. You have a good eye for spotting the smaller creatures in their environment. Funny about the number of spots...

I was hiking in the forest last week and saw one of these for the first time - love that bright green!! Great image!

I had to check out the larger photo. This is a very nice shot with great color. You do seem to find some of the most amazing creatures to photograph.
