Evil the Beetle

By shakeyhands
I have no Idea as to the correct name of this beetle. his body was about 50mm long and relatively thin, his antenna were around 75mm long. Dispite the disapproving look I'm getting he/she/it was a very patient subject, lens right up in it's face and all. I was going to upload a couple of versions but couldn't figure it out LOLTongueBlush. I did crop a little off the right side(distracting), and a little sharpening in LR.

Thanks for Lookin
