Fan-bearing Wood-borer, Buckinghamshire

Observation - Fan-bearing Wood-borer, Buckinghamshire. Description: I always enjoy seeing these small but spectacular wood-boring beetles. It's only the males that have these antler-like antennae, and the second picture also shows one of the beetles' burrows, with a beetle inside that may be one of the females.
