Today’s finding: a big Lucanus cervus (European stag beetle, « Lucane cerf-volant » in french).

Pretty impressive (almost 10cm long) in his samurai lacquered armor.

I hope this male had the time to mate before his death.

@0gust1 A cutie. But insects are generally good to put behind a CW.

@csepp very true! I’ll try to pay more attention next time, thanks !

(and a CW can also add a « dramatic » effect, haha :) )


gorgeous! more entomology in my timeline please.
