Been looking for one of these for three years now and have never seen one. This is a nice sharp image with good control of DOF.

How on earth did I miss this one Mike?!!!! Fabulously detailed image of an intriguing and majestic beetle. I've never ever seen one.

They slip through the net (weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee) with hardly anyone noticing Sylvia Wink

If we're lucky enough to discover more Stags next year I'll give you a ring - these wont chase you ragged through the bracken like those big boys with antlers do Smile
