brilliant colours !!! stunning stag beetle indeed !!
Fun fact! Despite its fearsome appearance, the stag beetle is a gentle giant. Though impressive, its large mandibles are actually for showing off to females during courtship rituals, and for wrestling with other males, and it is not capable of delivering a painful bite.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=...
What a gorgeous beetle, and fantastic shot!
Beautiful shot. Please add information under Habitat.
