The pin in V 2 really shows just how small it is, Carol: and it's very seldom we have seen one ready to fly as in V 1.
Excellent macro work again.

Great timing to get No. 1. There is something of Dr. Doolittle about you Carol to get these little critters to cooperate.

Fantastic capture, Carol, of the flight of this tiny Weevil. Another fantastic size comparison (V2), which I hope you only could innovate. Keep flying Carol.- Raja.

Oh, how super cool to see it's wings exposed like that - I've seen them fly, but then they are just a whir of movement. This is splendid.
