Rhinoceros Beetle

Continuing with the beetle theme, here are a couple of pictures of a male rhinoceros beetle, Sinodendron cylindricum, which I found in my garden in Halifax last night. It was struggling to walk - all caught up in thick cobweb which I removed with a pin and set him free to amble up the path, pointing him in the direction of the woodpile.

Great pictures Julian, both posts.
This is just like the one I told you I'd seen in a North Leeds garden.
