[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today a sunny day at last,although a bit windy it was a nice day for photography,could take many captures,but let start with a small weevil I noticed enjoying the sun,this was the only possible POV without disturbing him too much,in fact it is the first time that I saw and captured this small weevil and I have no clue if they are common or not,the weevil had a length of approx 14 mm (maybe someone can help with the proper ID),hope you like it and tfw

Picture is cropped (rotated),resized,sharpened on the B/W scale in Lab colors and sharpened before upload.

Hallo Paul,
Er zijn maar weinig dieren die ik niet ken, maar dit is voor mij een grote onbekende. Korenworm in het Nederlands? Prachtig gedetaileerde foto met super belichting. Mooi contrast tegen de groene achtergrond.
