What a great shot, they could have picked a more comfortable bed! Excellent detail captured, the rain (water drops) really add to this image.
Well done and thanks for posting.

Ahh more X-rated pictures, great stuff. An excellent contribution to the sexy-nature theme.
Composition is great. I have seen the male and female of this species together before, a good comparison. DOF and POV are good and the background provides good contrast.

Excellent capture Didier, I have not seen any Stag beetles this year, let alone a mating pair. Great shot, super details and the raindrops are a good touch.
Very well done.

Excellent colours and details on both beetles and the pine cone, and the droplets of water as a very pleasant extra, this is superb!
Very interesting to note the little difference in dimensions between male and female L. cervus here. Big woman, small guy.
Good luck he was successful in spite of his small antlers that would have brought him in a weak position when fighting for the female against other males. But very obviously he was just the smarter guy, and the better pilot in the air.
Success with women not always corresponds with size of antlers, and that's good news we hear from your lovely contribution.
Thank you, and best regards,
