I found this creature sitting/lying in the bushes in my backyard an early-summer day. I am pretty sure it is a cockchafer. Probably a forest, because I have heard that the common cockchafer doesn't like it up here in the north.
He was around an inch in size, not counting the legs. Actually one of the biggest insect I have seen around here.

I Really tried to even out the different exposure levels in the photo. But I am still not sure about those white spots on the edges.

What do you think?
