Tiger Beetle
Cicindela nebraskana
(formerly identified as Cicindela longilabris)

Cicindela longilabris
I was excited to find this tiger beetle on a dirt road leading to Heber City, Utah.  It has no visible light markings like
other Cicindela I've seen in Utah and
neither did its compatriots.  I love the gold nose.  © Carol Davis, 6-1-2012

mountain tiger beetle
Bugguide helped me identify this meat-eater (loves those insects). It was really fast and I was lucky
 to get
the three shots I did.  © Carol Davis, 6-1-2012
