from Mike Strick, in UK. Every year in early summer, the stag beetles emerge to find mates. They have spent the first five to seven years of their life underground as larvae and now have just a few short weeks to live as adults. Every year I'm ...

Today I moved some old rotted short logs that stood on end, and found many of these enormous grubs, about the size of thumb. I suspect them to be some stage in the life of the large death's head (delta-shape) moths we get here but I don't really ...
