It's good to be back in my kind of environment.

I came across this fella a couple of weeks back. After feasting on the juice of a crushed black grape he was on his way in search of a mate. Stag Beetles used to be very common when I was a kid and they could often be seen flying about on warm summer evenings. Then, I usually kept a male and female together for a couple of days before releasing them into the creviced bark of an old oak tree. It's a shame that something nature so imaginatively designed lives out of sight as a grub feeding on rotting wood for more years than the few short weeks it emerges in all its glory simply to mate and die. I've seen many lying crushed and broken having been stomped on for looking the way they do rather than left alone for being the completely harmless and magnificent creatures that they are. He brought back very fond memories of my childhood forays into the natural world of Kent.
