Caption: Tiger beetle. Macrophotograph of the head of the tiger beetle Cicindela campestris. Powerful biting mandibles are seen (at lower centre); a pair of compound eyes enable this beetle to detect quick movements. Cicindela campestris is a predatory beetle with long legs, and as an agile runner it is able to run down and efficiently kill its insect prey. As here, tiger beetles (family: Cicindelidae) often bear vivid colour patterns.
