Awesome spotting! Congrats to you on SOTD! It looks like it has antlers:)
Very Impressive !!!, congrats.
Congrats on the SOTD! The antennae are wonderful:-)
Congratulations on the SOTD, manuelariasarias77.Beautiful but how does it get around with such huge antennae, it does not fly...does it?!
Gracias a todos. Arya - Manuel flipped the bug to get a good view of it's eyes, but it proceeded to move quite frantically (hence the blurriness),so he righted it.
Did it curl up in the last picture due to being touched? Upside down it looks funnier than right-side up.
Great series! Congratulations!

Congratulations! This beauty of a beetle has been selected as Spotting of the Day! Great shots of the feathered antennae and I especially love the 2nd shot with the green and yellow leaf coloration. Thanks for sharing Costa Rica with us and we look forward to seeing what you encounter next!Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/projectnoahTwitter: https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/4...
