Good detailed photo with natural colours.
Overall sharpness OK. Anyhow, a special animal.
Thanks and regards, Ruud

Seems that we like weevils (only in photos, not those that attack the food). Very good details, I like the comparison of sizes with the finger.

This are very variable in colours and sizes. I have several special in my archieves and gave up with most of them.
I only found one, and quite similar to this, but I dont think it is unless there is a Eucaliptus forest nearby.
Make a search on gonipterus scutellatus, and tell me what you think. I have posted one here: http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe/Spain/photo6599.htm
You are a bit lazy with the noise in the BG, otherwise a great shot :) Regards, Felipe.
