Wetsalts Tiger Beetle
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
spiders.  © Carol Davis 9-9-2015

The longer cream-colored patches on the abdomen of this
particular beetle 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
