Six Spotted Tiger Beetle - Bugs and Beetles in Sutton Massachusetts
Tiger beetles come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes and colors. The one we saw in Sutton, Massachusetts was a beautiful irridescent green color. It is called a six spotted tiger beetle even though to me it seems to have eight spots!
This is known as Cicindela sexguttata.
