What the naked ..... eye cannot see !
A Weevil - found several eating fresh Buddleia shoots.
This monster is about 4mm body length.
Looked liked a bit of dirt until I took a closer look - it's like a mini Anteater.
EDIT. Thanks to * KarenFB * for identifying this as a 'Weevil'
Thanks for stopping by - and special thanks to * davidhu * for his User Award on my previous image.
A beautiful little Weevil! I love the brilliant details you've caught. They are so cute, but very distructive!
Superb work considering the size, Well seen and captured
amazing capture Bri.
I would say what a beauty Bri, but that may be stretching things a bit!!, fantatsic work on getting so much detail in something so small.
Also incicative of some outstanding photography skills--
I love the placement of his antenae!
Ugly little devil but very good capture

Thanks very much for the ID Karen - got my book out again and I can see from the long snout that it is a Weevil.
Wow amazing detail! I cannot believe it is only 4mm long!
Glad he's only 4 mm long & not the size I see him on the screen Brian

exactly my feelings Brian but a great macro shot
He's wonderful - methinks I'm going to have to consider my macro setup as I'd love to produce images like this....
He's beautiful, Brian, very well captured. Carol
An excellent macro
Great capture, stunning sharp detail,Very very well done.
Fantastic close up Brian.
A truly superb macro.
excellent DOF Brian, with fine detail where it matters. Superb macro photography.
I've always been impressed by your ability to draw all the lovely details out of these macro shots Brian, but here you have surpassed yourself. Quite staggering in every sense, and well ugly too... Dave
Terrific macro Brian...Bill
Superb capture. Sylvia
Reminds me of those fellows from Hitchhiker's Guide
This is one close close close CLOSE-UP, Brian, and so deliciously razor sharp too. Amazing...
Here's another one I wish was from your paper bag of plastic look alikes Brian. Any thought of Weevils and my foot itches to SQUASH 'EM . It is amazingly sharp and now we know what the little devils look like xxxx
well spotted Brian...and even more so...very well taken
Thanks everyone for your kind comments on this image - I am quite surprised by the response actually - really appreciate it.
@ Mavis - perhaps it is one of my plastic lookalikes !!!!!
He seems to have a sense of purpose about him Brian. Excellent detail as usual.
super macro, extra ordinary insect
4mm ? superb then !
Cracking detail captured Brian, I'd better check my buddleia bushes.
An amazing piece of macrowork, the detail is awesome especially considering this creature is so small
