[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This very little insect (less than 2 mm) came into my sight and waked up my curiousity. I took the chance to test the close-up position of my camera and made several close-up pictures of it. Until now I could not post it due to the fact that, not being a biologist, I did not now what it was. Today I saw what TN member CARLOS MARZANO (cmarzano) posted.
The insect is a coleopterous, belongs to the Curculionoidea and its family is Curculionidae –gonatocero (elbowed antennas)
I croped, rezised and framed the image

bella aproximacion ralf pero el blanco quedo un poco duro. Un saludo

Que MACRO con mayusculas con el detalle delos ojos compeustos y su magnifica trompa si busca con GOOGLE en imagenes de la familia puede tener suerte de hallarlo con nombre de genero y especie

Hi Rolf,
Great macro work here!
Most interesting creature, never seen anything like this...
DOF spot on, and your point of view works fine!
And you should post even if you don't know the species, you will always get help from TN members!

Hi Rolf, Outstanding macro work! I was shocked when I saw it, never seen anything like it. PoV is just right, DOF could be slighlty greater (personal choice)but your settings are very good. Regards Tim

Hello Rolf,
very nice macro. POV and DOF work well together. Details colors and composition are very good.

Hej Rolf!
Naprawdę dobre makro.
Wiem jakie to malutkie, sama próbowalam robić. Na dodatek robaczek mój krył się w ciniu. Twój jest znakomity!
Gratuluję i pozdrawiam - Roma
