  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    So I spotted this, not really sure what it is. Size: roughly 4cm, spotted on an Oak Tree. I t did fly - not very well, but still managed it.

    Nice find m8 - wouldn't have thought an oak would be a home for it - I only ever find them on the ground!

    Thanks Paul, I quite often see beetles up in trees on leaves, first time I've seen one so didn't really know where you'd usualy find them.

    Oh, lots of lovely detail in the second one. Nice pose too. I like that a lot.

    Top end could be pulled down slightly perhaps?
