Powerful looking Stag Beetle, Siegfried.
Very effective POV from which all the features of this insect are clearly discernible.

Nice macro of this Stag Beetle. Good sharpness and fine contrasting colours against the grey stony background.

Very common species (Animal Planet) to me, although haven't face it in natural habitat. Looks very powerful in the Beetle family. Very good DOF and details. Good work....
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,

Nice specie Sigi,
Stag beetles (Lucanus cervus) are protected by law in my country because they are a very rare specie and it is in decline...The mails have very large jaws. This specimen has excellent shape. Perfect details and focus.
