I was riding home from karate last night when something struck me on the arm with medium-pebble-size force. Glancing down, I was surprised to find a stag beetle in my lap. (I was going to put 'stunned-looking stag beetle', if only for the alliteration, but it is kind of hard to tell.)

He showed signs of wanting to take off again, so I grabbed him and chucked him in the direction of the verge, thinking this would give him more of a chance than if he dismounted on the right, towards the centre of the road.

Stag beetles are sufficiently uncommon that if you spot one, you are requested to fill in a survey about it. Mine will make fun reading.

I am so glad he didn't go in my helmet.
