Stag Beetle

Female Stag Beetle - found crawling across the grass in the back garden by my elder daughter Rebecca.

Lesser Stag Beetle, taken last year, for comparison

  1. A mighty beast! Had a few Lessers, but the only Stag Beetle I've ever seen was many years ago when a workmate brought a male in for me from his garden in Ashford (near Staines). Hence, quite envious.

  2. Impressive. The NBN map shows them to be quite common on the south coast of Devon but have I ever seen one? Nope.

    1. It will come Andrew, and when it does it won't disappoint.
