Hello TN-friends,
when I opened the Gallery today I found Siggis nice weevil - and remembered, I also captured one some days ago - so this one is for Siggi ...

My poor little weevil here had to wear a heavy weight with all the drops on him - it was raining at this guy was sitting on the upper side of the leaf instead of hiding under it.
This is a Polydrusus cervinus, Braungrauer Glanzrüssler in German. I don't know the name in other languages, sorry.

I hope you like this little guy, thanks for looking

Ciao Sabine, amazing macro, fantastic drops on lovely bug, splendid iridiscens colors, superb sharpness and fine details, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

This Weevil certainly looks like a 'beast of burden' to me, Sabine!
What an amusing capture and technically so very outstanding! I know water droplets have been your favourite theme, but to have two themes together here is a miracle of sorts.
Thanks for sharing this picture Siggi would find quite entertaining.

Hallo Liebe Sabine,
Ich bin sehr dankbar für Deine Aufmerksamkeit und noch mit soooo einen Käfer, Deine Welt bekannte Tropfen können nicht fehlen.
In der nächste Einkauf Liste steht ein 100mm!
Danke Siggi

Hello Sabine,
Before I read your note, I was thinking: oh, poor guy attacked by Sabine with her special trick to make dewdrops on flowers... But I was wrong: it was simply the rain! Fantastic colours and sharpness my friend! Great job! And congratulations for finding the ID. Cheers,

Hello Sabine,
Beautiful photo of this weevil in great sharpness and splendid natural colours. The waterdrops are gorgeous.

Hi Sabine,
you definitely and always managing to presents images with a bit more than a species introduction and this tiny droplets are just the flavor of the shot here. Truly a photographic pinnacle similar to the spectacular of the German football national team yesterday! Well done indeed! Breathtaking!

Great macro of this Insekt in the Morning, TFS!

Intresante y oportuno disparo a este pequeño coleóptero. Buenos colores y composición del conjunto, aunque algo justa la nitidez de la escena, no se el motivo.
Un saludo Sabine: Josep Ignasi.

Grüss Dich Sabine,

es ist Die ein toller Schuss gelungen. Der prächtig schillernde Käfer, schwer beladen mit Tand und mit starren Blick, das alles erinnert mich mächtig an einen Diktator aus südlichen Gefilden. Die ID ist knifflig mit den vielen grünen Rüsselkäfer- Arten, aber Du hast die Hürde gut genommen.

herzlichgüsst Dich Dieter

Hi Sabine.
I am amazed with your terrific macro picture again. And again you use water drops for decoration of the image skillfully. Ultimate details and sharpness of all main objects – cute insect, drops and leaf as a splendid stage for main character. Fill flash is great as usual. Composition of the picture is spot on. Thanks a lot and warm greetings.

Amazing shot with ur trademark water drops and a weevil. These kind of pictures actually bring me back TN once in a while :-)

Hallo Sabine
You are really very good with the photography of water droplets. This is just another marvellous shot from you. The details and especially the golden colours seen inside the droplets are awesome. The image as a whole is stunning and the presentation absolutely perfect. Looking at images like yours encourages me to try again and again. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Sabine,

The capture of the droplets of water on the insect is an asset to the composition. The leaves are framing well the insect. The close-ip view is showing the details and colors of the weevil. The late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.
