Six- Spotted Tiger Beetles Copulating
Six-Spotted Tiger Beetle
Cicindela sexguttata
(Species)
These attractive beetles were constantly moving about making photography difficult. Only when they began to copulate did they remain still. This didn't last long though for while still attached to the male the female chased an ant across the rock, caught and ate it.

American Carrion Beetle On Opossum Carcass
American Carrion Beetle
Necrophila americana
(Species)
Carrion Beetles are major players in the decomposition of dead animals. They not only eat the decaying flesh but the adults eat fly larva or maggots which would otherwise compete with their own larva. These beetles lay their eggs in the carcass and their larva live on the carrion then pupate in the ground for several month to emerge and fly off in search of another dead body to begin the cycle again. We have these beetles to thank for some what reducing the fly population and cleaning up carrion.
