Good afternoon folks,
I thought I would upload something different today.
Whilst snapping damsels I came across this little chap, what kind of weevil he is
I don't know there are many species. Just thought he deserved a chance in the gallery.
Out of interest he is about 7mm long and this is a hand held shot.
Thanks for looking and a special thanks to PattiW for her UA on my Orange tip and
to everyone else who voted.

We have all heard about weevils through song and music, yet how many are seeing a weevil for the first time? Count me in that newly informed group. What an odd looking varmit. Is this the Boll weevil? As in cotton? TG

It does look like clanger Smile- a bit soft Colin that's the hand held I expect.
