Cockchafer

At the risk of turning into David Attenborough... here is something I caught flying around the bedroom the other night. At the time it felt like I was wrestling with a small bird. Actually it is was beetle... but what a beetle!

Having consulted Google, I reckon that this is a Cockchafer (aka May Bug, aka Maybeetle).

The more observant amongst you may recall a photo I took recently in NZ of a Black Sand Scarab lavae. It was just laying there on the beach. These guys are related. Well fancy that...
