Carabus (Archicarabus) nemoralis*

The images on this page are all from photos of a single Carabus (Archicarabus) nemoralis ground beetle..  After collecting this beetle at around 10:00 AM from under a rock in our backyard at Logy Bay, Newfoundland, I placed him on a sheet of white paper in the sun for the photographs.  I released him when the photo session was over.

This specimen was 23 mm (~1 inch) in length, plus antennae.  It was photographed on 2006-04-29, with a Canon 20D and EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM lens & 1.4x tele-converter in natural sunlight.

*Caveat:  I am NOT an entomologist and, as with all my bug pictures, I am NOT positive about the accuracy of my taxonomic identification.
