Nice one, Lisl.

He is looking for a fight...
Lisl: I think he was fazed by my flash, Ray
He looks a bit defensive!
Lisl: I had just taken several pictures of him by flash, Elizabeth

Joli scarabée qui a de quoi se défendre.
Lisl: Isn't he a beauty!
There you go again, Lisl. I'm keeping my distance, if you don't mind.
Lisl: We'll have to go "insecting" one day, Ginnie!

Hirschkäfer in German - oh, he looks aggressive.
Lisl: Some of our beetles are called chafers, Philine
Coming home from the ugly bug ball eh Lisl.
Lisl: Imaginatively put, Chad

Delightful stuff Lisl, I can see there is a slightly reddish tinge to parts of his anatomy
Lisl: Yes - he is quite a beauty with his red make-up, Chris

They are like relics from the dinosaur age.
Lisl: They certainly are - and similarly protected, Alan

You agitated him, I think smile Excellent detail.
Lisl: Thank you, Louis - he didn't like my flash
Is he looking for a hind or perhaps a behind to nip.
Lisl: I wonder how much it would hurt, Martin
I like it's deep burgundy colour. Well done.
Lisl: Thank you very much, Mary

Lisl: Isn't he just!
those are some mighty pincers, Lisl.
Lisl: I wouldn't like to be another stag beetle, Ayush

Lisl: Merci bien
Good shot Lisl, lots of detail, I bet insects are terrified when they see this coming.
Lisl: They like juicy fruit, Brian, thank you
