Very nice picture, very sharp and detailed. On the other hand I think that this is not a Lucanidae species but member of Scarabaeidae, most probably subfamily Melolonthinae. But you are right, this is a female.

Nice close-up of this beetle. And you did a good job on the background. You caught him in a good pose - you captured the shine of his body well.

Splendid shot of the beetle this. Very neat and sharp with fine focus. The sheen on its body is looks nice. You have managed the harsh BG well here. Looks really regal. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

I shot this Beetle in India last year during the rains under similar circumstances, JC. It had got attracted to the light and had fallen into a wash-basin inside the house. Here is a picture of it.
The Beetle looks definitely stout. The coloration has come out darker in your picture, perhaps because of different lighting conditions and PP work.
Nevertheless, it is good capture.

I like your beetle despite the difficult light conditions. It's details are vivid and the contrasty white wall is not a drawback - even with the flash.
Greetings and tfs!
