This week’s photo is of the speedy little (7-8 mm) beetle, Bembidion tetracolum, I captured in the annex. I was able to use Alex Wild’s time out trick to get him to hold still long enough a few photos. The genus Bembidion is huge with over 1200 species worldwide with this diversity concentrated in temperate parts of the globe. Thanks to v belov and D.R. Maddison at BugGuide for the timely ID.
