Back to the insects today, as yesterday's flower didn't seem to be very popular. Another weevil I found in the garden, I love these fellas, with their big black eyes and long snout. If someon could give me it's proper name I would be most grateful.

Udate: Many thanks to Geoff (gwood) for his identification of this weevil as APION FRUMENTATIUM.
