“Stag beetles gathering in tree sap”

In the woods after the rain. The surface of the oak tree was covered with sap in places. A few stag beetles were visiting. Same species, but with different  shapes. They walked around on the trunk. Nearby, a beetle nuzzled its face into the sap and didn’t move an inch.  [AUGUST 2021]
