Swimming Pool Bug

Posted by Picasa
This is probably the most colorful bug I ever saw, but I have no clue what it might be. Unfortunately it drowned because of a sojourn in the Guffey's pool. Or maybe fortunately. For all I know this bug may be the Mother of Millions that will consume all agricultural crops and give epizootie to all people causing mass extinctions. But I rather doubt it. If you have any idea what this is, please let me know.

This is probably a tiger beetle. They run fast and may bite if you try to capture them. I guess we were just lucky on that count that this one was half drowned when we found it. It was probably speeding along and overshot into the pool.
