A Six Spotted Tiger Beetle for Camera Critters

I saw this colourful florescent green beetle while walking along the railroad tracks yesterday.  Its striking flourscent green metallic colour caught my eye I hadn't noticed the white spots on its body until I downloaded my pictures.   A google search of "flourscent green bug" led me to its id, having white spots on its wings and all was a key feature in helping me determine its identification.. At this time of year a daily walk in nature leaves one in awe of the beauty, design and colour that surrounds us  always in the great outdoors.
