In association with Richmond Park Stag Beetle Project.
These images were only possible with the help of a qualified handler - this should not be attempted otherwise. The Stag Beetle is an endangered species.
Quicktime movies of the Stag Beetles are available below (please us apple quicktime to view)...
The others I did a couple of weeks back of the dead samples.
