I met this green tiger beetle (Cicindela campestris) in a moor on peaty ground. I like the english name "tiger beetle" as it really fits to its behaviour. In german they are called Sandlaufkäfer (something like sand-running-beetle).
Hi, I'm sutend in management of wildlife and I make a information panel for public on the Lucanus cervus in my taining and I need photos of the cicindela campestris to illustrate predators of the Lucane. Can I use your photo please?
What means "trzyszcz" in english?
Yes, it is easier in the morning is easier, but you must have luck to find them.
In sonnenbeschienen, sandigen Gebieten findet man den Dünensandlaufkäfer (bei uns häufig in Kieskuhlen, vielleicht auch am Meer) und den Feldsandlaufkäfer gibt es häufig in Mooren an torfigen, relativ offenen Stellen.
In Poland we call them "trzyszcz", probably because their mandibles are so large and people think that they can make special sound.
I tried to capture them during a day many times... it is very difficult but I've made 3 or 5 good shots. As I see looking for them very early or just before dusk is much easier
Very nice shot
