A gablo, in Hoy July 2005. But what kind is it?

I can help you there- it's a green one with spots on its back.

I think this thing is a common green tiger beetle (cicindela campestris). A friend spotted it on a tv programme, recognised it and let me know.

Always reminds me of the Kerryman who called his pet tiger 'Spot'.
