Stag Beetle

By Dinney
Found this beauty sun bathing in my garden, such a rare sight these days so I thought I would add it to the rest of the flops in my portfolio and share it with you all. Hope you like it.

Rare indeed, I haven't seen one for a long time. I guess this is a female not having the large horns. Well captured.

You are quit right; they are a bit rare these days, I cant remember the last time I saw one. This is a superb shot.

To be honest not sure I have ever seen one before. Cracking capture with good detail.

Good capture Kev, I think the last time I saw one of these was at primary school [long time ago] when one of the teachers found one and brought it in to show us .
