Meikevers = May bugs

If you see very carefully you can see son#2 holding some leafs and 2 May bugs or cockchafers. My dad found 7 of them and took 3 of them with him to our house. They are nearly eradicated in the last century by the use of pesticides, so I was very surprised that he had found some. I remember them sitting in the hedge of my parents as a kid, but I haven´t seen them since.
Nic took them to school to show the other kids after I informed the teacher and after school we set them free in our hedge so they can lay their eggs there and maybe start a new colony.
