It is a very nice and clear capture of this asymetric weevil. I wonder why this bug has this apearance, may a genetic mistake?
I posted a similar one here and did not get to the exact specie although I looked for it a long time.
Very nice post, thanks for sharing.
Una "gran" macro en todos los aspectos Mark, con osado pero efectivo punto de vista mostrando buenos detalles del gorgojo con agudeza y buen foco.
Pregunta... por qué con una velocidad de 1/2000 debiste utilizar el flash en este caso, produciendo algunos reflejos evitables?
De todas maneras, una interesante presentación para incluir en tu portfolio.
Mis mejores saludos... Ricardo

You pictured an intersting weevil here. It's a member of a genus Lixus, there are several species in Europe, all similar, and it's hard to tell the right one based on a photo. All of them live on herbaceous plants, often in wet places or just on the border of water. Look at this website to see a bit more.
