Just had to let you all see my little visitor that was on my wall yesterday.
It was a Female Stag Beetle, the Male has long antlers, (that was the only way I checked it out LOL!!)
It was about 2 inches long and was very good at staying in position for me to photograph it.
It flew away as soon as I was done, the wing span must have made it up to at least 3 inches wide (THAT'S BIG)
I thought it was a lesser stag beetle at first but it has a different back markings. We get them come into our garden every year, but this was the first POSER !!
I promise the next photo's I put on will be of my craft work, just couldn't resist this one.
Take care everyone
