[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of some 60,000 species found worldwide, weevils have a distinctive long snout which is curved downward so that it can bore into plants. At the end of the snout are the mouth parts that chew fruits, seeds, and other plant parts.

I have seen many of those, but never knew what it was. Love the colors. Just wonder if the use of a light flash will have give you a darker background for contrast. TFS!
