Stag Beetle

I’ve seen the stag beetles in the garden a few times over the past couple of weeks, mostly they arrive when it’s too dark for a decent photo or they are quickly off doing important beetle stuff...

But this one was a proper poser! There was another male in the bush - so this is one half of the standoff taking place on the shed. I took the opportunity for some nice sharp photos - got to love stag beetles!


  1. What's not to love? Wish we had them over here.

    1. It’s now a fishing and beetle blog! Hopefully I’ll get to see them a few more times when the hot weather returns.

      All the places I’ve lived and fished and I had to move to London to see a stag beetle - the last place I’d have thought would be a stronghold!

    1. Surprised Savage Gear haven’t made one.
