A magnificent specimen

I think most people take lunch boxes to work with sandwiches in it. I have the idea that for me, the sandwiches are just an excuse. I need something to put my insects in!! :)
This is a Large Brown Longhorn (Macrotoma palmata) - aptly named for sure. His body length is about 2 inches.
