Figwort Weevil


Today we spotted this weevil in the garden, on the buddleia. We were having a poke around looking for insects or bugs and nearly overlooked this weevil as he’s really small and from a quick glance you’d think he was just a little bit of dirt. It was only when I looked closer I realised there were tiny legs, and then he started walking around! I think weevils are weird and wonderful – like little tiny six-legged elephants! After a bit of googling I’ve concluded that this one is a Figwort Weevil.

  1. Your macro shots are really incredible. This is great and he does look like a six-legged elephant! Your lens is fabulous (as if your eye). I use Nikon so I need to go in search of a comparable macro lens for my Nikon. I continue to be impressed with your photography.
