Cock, Common, Garden or Welsh? That is the question. Something to do with feet. Something to do with habitat. I really don’t know, and until a few days ago it would just have been a beetle. To assist with the definitive identification here are extreme close-up versions of every image I have of the beast, with varying degrees of quality.
So if you know anything about beetles and have nothing to do on this rainy day – chuck your expertise at this lot!
