thank you for your visit and kind words. The answer to your question: Unfortunately not. When I tried to free that beetle it tourned out to be stiff and dead already. So, in order to cheer you up a little bit, I am adding another picture of the Alpine longicorn: a lively couple seen last summer on a hot sunny day at at high noon in the Vienna Woods.
Austria: Alpine longicorns in love.
With thanks and all my best wishes to you,
