Thank you Janet! Yes, the last one, with those stunning antennae, is the Cockchafer! They do have rather sticky feet, so once picked up it is quite hard to remove them.
We have a fair amount of rotting logs about the place to try to help the stags. The larvae grow to about 3 inches before emerging in their adult form - just fantastic stuff!
The dragonflies are emerging now, too - also amazing to think they spend several years growing at the bottom of the pond looking quite scary before turning into such beauties! Nature is so wonderful. I found an oil beetle in the garden this year - never seen one before (in fact, never even heard of one before!)
