I believe these are photos of a tiger beetle... but if someone knows better, please let me know. I have seen these metallic green insects for years but never ventured to photograph them until recently while trekking through Darby Creek Park in Central Ohio. The insect is fairly skittish, but one brave soul actually let me approach within a few inches--I think he wanted to fight.
