Ooh, it chafes!

Summer Chafer (I think), Thurlby Fen, Lincs

some great macro shots. what camera are you using for those?

It does look like a summer chafer Amphimallon solstitialis. but I am certainly no entomologist. i just like bugs.

These pics were taken with a Canon PowerShot A640, which has an incredible macro for a compact. As you can tell, it was dark and I flashed the poor beastie.

okay, I remember it from Kazakhstan. Is this the same camera that you normally use for digiscoping? (like the Antpitta?)
