Melolontha melolontha

Hey there, do you recognize him?

The antennae are so evident that it's easy to say our friend is a cockchafer, or May bug or Maggiolino in Italian, a big beetle which almost diseapperead some decades ago because of the use of DDT and other pesticides. Now it's getting a bit more common again but it still has one big enemy: artificial lighting. Its orientation system cannot cope with it and that's why this morning I found this guy (it's a male, 7 leaves on the antennae instead of 6 for the females) crawling on the grass like if it was drunk (see pic below). It was right below a big light where yesterday night it most likely crashed into many times.  

After some time it managed to fly away but I had enough time to take another funny picture.
