Six Spotted Tiger Beetle

By

greenAlthough small, that bright green color made this Six Spotted Tiger Beetle(Cicindela sexguttata) hard to be missed while the WooFDriver was out Free Range running the WooFPAK.

The common name and the species name refer to the number of small white spots on the beetle’s metallic-green body, usually numbering six. But that is not always true, as some individuals have more spots, fewer spots, or none at all.
