I nearly stepped on this metallic looking beetle on the path to the Tuscany cottage today.  I popped him on a nearby stump and he obliged me by posing for a few photographs.  After an extensive Google search, I think he is a Golden-green Stag Beetle.  He really is quite a pretty colour.

The male beetles battle with their large mandibles, like stags and their antlers, thus the common name of stag beetle.
