Cicindela haemorrhagica

Cicindela haemorrhagica
These were running all over the sand at Willard Bay State Park in Box Elder County the day
I stopped by. I really didn't expect to find much that day but I was lucky - I found a few good
birds, insect
s and spiders.  © Carol Davis 9-9-2015

The longer cream-colored patches on the abdomen look like a balled-up fist on one side
 and an open hand on the other. Tiger Beetles are very fast flyers and usually just cover
short distances - just enough to get away from beach strollers. © Carol Davis 9-9-2015
