What’s That Bug?
Are the attached pictures a male stag beetle, Lucanus elaphus? He was found on our back patio in Raleigh, NC. My daughter (10) and husband had quite a time "playing" with him before his release! Your site is most helpful! Thanks!

What an artful photograph of the Elephant Stag Beetle, a male with some impressive “antlers”.
