Reddish-brown stag beetle

Lucanus capreolus


This guy seriously needs a better common name. "Reddish-brown stag beetle" does not evoke the proper awe for such a cool mini-beast! Found him under a log while I was herping and he just sat there on my thumb while I took his picture. All hail the stag beetle!
