I found this beautiful female Stag Beetle today

Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE Stag Beetles. I found this beautiful one today. They only spend a few weeks of their long lives above ground so it is a privilege to find one. They love fruit. I kept an injured Stag Beetle alive for months by giving it a daily saucer of Ribena. Do you love beetles too ?

  1. He is very pretty. Insects are not really my thing though. Spiders give me the willies, but beetles are very regal. :-)
