Hi Krzysztof,
Its been a long time since I've seen one of these.We had them in England,but not here in New Zealand.We have a much smaller species of stag beetle here.

Nice idea to let him sit on your hand as it gives good scaling!
Insect is captured with excellent details, DOF is neatly selected...
Well framed, good lighting!

never seen one in nature, too bad.
