Although I hate all the insects, I like your photo:) There is a small clarity problem but I am sure you will fix it in the future. TFS.

I love these beetles ... used to keep them as pets at boarding school in London many years ago.
Great to capture it about to fly like this.
They're always a bit hard to focus on clearly.
The sensors dont pick up black beetles too well at the best of times,let alone while they're moving.
I did not see this image before, sorry. You may be too modest, but this is a very rare sight, a Stag beetle just at the split second it flies off! Beautiful, how it keeps its precarious balance. As you said, flying Stag beetles are "something else". My compliments to this one, Steve. In a workshop version I tried to post process the image somewhat, tell me what you think of it. Don't worry, the copyright stays with you.
My best regards and a Happy New Year
