I have no idea what it is but I saw this cool bug when I was feeding the chooks and got all excited and grabbed it in Meg's butterfly net (ok mum- just show me what it is when you catch it!) and then housed it in her bug cage (mummmmmmmm! Then where will I put my stag beetle??) As we don't actually have a stag beetle in residence I promised that I would release it the moment she found her ever elusive beetle buddy. (They're not actually that hard to find- it's just K and I aren't exactly that keen on housing them here so you could say our efforts to look for them are less than persistent...)
Unlike Meg I am a fan of catch and release when it comes to bugs so this one is just an overnight visitor but what a wild looking one, huh?
