Mysterious beetle

Back in April, I saw this really cool, neon green beetle in the garden. I looked online to find pictures but was unsuccessful in figuring out what kind of beetle it was. Today, however, I was looking up other beetles to see what kind of beetle is living in our playroom (ewww, I know!) and managed to identify the green beetle as the six-spotted green tiger beetle. It seems to be a good guy for gardens because they eat ants and other bugs, but not plants. That’s very good news because this is one beautiful insect, as you can see.

    Hey, thats not fair. You’ve got a great picture. I can see the six spots. If I were trying to identify a bug it would probably be called fuzzy thing with some legs!
