It looks to me like a black metallic tiger beetle, of the genus Cicindela. They are common throughout regions with sandy or clay soil and found near bodies of water, like lakes, streams, rivers, or the ocean.

Thanks so much! Yeah, I live on the coast, and my yard is mostly sand. I don't mind most crawly things, but he really gave me the jitters lol!
