MAY BUG

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

As dusk falls on a warm, still May evening, turn on your porch light and wait for a rather amus­ing vis­i­tor. Com­mon Cockchafer (aka May Bug) is a large, chest­nut-winged in­sect with enor­mous eyes and im­pres­sively ‘leaved’ an­ten­nae. It is also dis­tinctly clumsy, as of­ten as not ric­o­chet­ing be­tween win­dow and wall in­stead of fly­ing in search of mates. Al­low one to crawl onto your finger and feel how sticky it is! PLANT
