Look what I just found floating in my pond! (No – not the 50p piece!). Looks like he could give quite a nip! I don’t think I’ve seen such a large beetle before (except in a zoo!)
Stag beetle. You should feel honoured to see one. 🙂
An Update –
After I took the photo, I left the beetle on the kitchen floor. An hour or so later, it was on its back, wiggling its legs! i took it outside and put it on a wall. This morning it had disappeared. This afternoon, I was sitting in the garden and it (or another one) flew past me! It was an amazing sight! It flew with its body almost vertical. It seemed almost impossible that those lacy wings could support that huge bulky body!
