Capricorn Beetle ?

Just thought I would post this as a matter of interest. Not a brilliant photograph as it would not keep still.

It emerged from a log I was about to put on the fire, good job I spotted it! He certainly is a cute little chap. I think it is Cerambyx cerde, which is also known as the Capricorn Beetle.

If anyone knows different I would be pleased to know!
