"I come in Peace!"
Lisl: First laugh of the day, Ray
Ooooh! Great shot of this little dragon!
Lisl: He is like a little dragon, Elizabeth, but quite a peaceful one, thank you
Well done, Elisabeth...Once again I'd have been off!
Lisl: Thank you, Frank.You are a big softie, really!

Off to the ball eh Lisl.
Lisl: Some female would be glad to be squired by this, Chad
That little guy looks armed and dangerous.
Lisl: No problem for humans, Michael
He looks terrific Lisl! Great capture.
Lisl: Thank you, Frank - he was as big as he looks
Little yuck, but intriguing at the same time.
Lisl: It just sat there, and I was able to get right close up
I have a feeling he's imploring someone to go out with him for a change..."I'm nowhere near as dangerous as I look, really!!!"
Lisl: You could be right, and I don't think he is dangerous, Ginnie

Great capture Lisl. I am afraid ! LOL !
Lisl: Thank you kindly - no need - he was mesmerised!
Stag beetles are such an interesting insect. They do look quite scary though. Excellent shot!
Lisl: Thank you, Mary - this one was particularly big
A lovely creature, Lis. An armour covered beastie.
Lisl: Probably as few predators, Pauline
Advance at your peril, what interesting claws it has
Lisl: They look prehensile, Martin

Lisl: We had a great talk, Ayush!!

Makes quite a noise when one of them hits the windscreen at 120 kmh. Great shot.
Lisl: I can imagine. We get the smaller Maybugs here and they make such a din when hey hit the windows

This looks like a great warior. What a great beetle this is. Wonderful ' skin' this one has, I don know the proper word for it.
Lisl: I think the word you want is "carapace", Astrid
The weirdest looking of creature I always think. Very good image of this Lisl.
Lisl: They don't look real, and this one was so motionles it could have been a child's toy - thank you, Brianb
Woah- that's terrific, Lisl.
Lisl: Thanks, Tom - a willing sitter
