face of the ground beetle
This is a pregnant female European Ground Beetle.  Obviously she hasn't
been out to get new "clothes" that fit.  I see these predatory beetles from
time to time in my garden.  Carol Davis, 5-29-2009

ground beetle
This was the first ground beetle I found in my yard.  It was in the
garden. Quite the colorful little devil.  They are known to prey on
oft-bodied garden pests such as slugs. Carol Davis, 7-8-07
