    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?
