Tiger Beetle by nele102 Tiger Beetle by nele102
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). ;)

What means "trzyszcz" in english? ;)
Yes, it is easier in the morning is easier, but you must have luck to find them. :)

@ Kathrin
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.

Grrr, wenn ich die Biester nur seh... Wünsch mir schon so lange gut Bilder von denen zu kriegen, hab die Viecher aber erst 1 oder 2x gesehen und langsam sind sie wirklich nicht...

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 :)
