The Caterpillar Hunter - Laura Gillis
These are one of my favorite ground beetles. The iridescent colors are just beautiful and these look like big jewels on spindly legs. (Maybe one of these days I will figure out how to paint those colors.)
I wonder if these guys like owlet moth caterpillars? I was working out in the shop fairly late last night and when I quit and looked around, the shop was swarming with hundreds of moths! When the eggs from those moths hatch it should be a grand buffet for the Caterpillar Hunters!
