Northern Dune Tiger Beetle
These little critters are so incredibly fast...they run, jump and fly.
Happily I was able to 'freeze' him in order to do a quick portrait shoot...:laughing:

Great shot! Tiger beetles are awesome but really really fast. I haven't managed to "catch" one on camera yet.

Ehrm......I can't exactly explain. But no worries....I do it with my own Insect Powers, not with glue or anything that could harm the insect....;)

I knew it!!! You're a mind-mesmerizing alien from the outskirts of Neptune's moons who has come to this planet to destroy our economy by filling our markets with amazing and difficult-to-get photographs! Well, this is one human you won't hypnotize into thinking you're the greatest photographer in all of history, because I know your secret. . . ooh. . . look at that picture!!! O_O I will obey your every command, oh High Lord of the Camera Lens!
