this is brilliant Anita ..
many congratulations on the ribbon and those fantastic shadows .. !! ..
you really rock that Google Pixel 3 .. you are a perfect example of it being all about the photographer .. not so much the equipment ...
altho having said that .. gotta love great equipment .. !! .. :)

hope you are having a wonderful time .. good time to not be in australia night now .. bush fires all over the country ..
really bad near me .. i've packed and loaded the car .. ready to evacuate if necessary .. i love living near the bush .. but in summer when there are high temps and really strong winds it can be pretty scarey .. :(

Gaby .. they come in so many varieties .. and some do have very long snouts .. when i found this guy i then googled them .. incredible ..
"Weevils are a type of beetle belonging to the superfamily Curculionoidea. They are usually small, less than 6 mm (0.24 in), and herbivorous. About 97,000 species of weevils are known. They belong to several families, with most of them in the family Curculionidae (the true weevils). Some other beetles, although not closely related, bear the name "weevil", such as the biscuit weevil (Stegobium paniceum), which belongs to the family Ptinidae.

Many weevils are considered pests because of their ability to damage and kill crops. The grain or wheat weevil (Sitophilus granarius) damages stored grain. The boll weevil (Anthonomus grandis) attacks cotton crops; it lays its eggs inside cotton bolls and the larvae eat their way out. Other weevils are used for biological control of invasive plants.

Some weevils have the ability to fly, such as the rice weevil."


from my research i think this weevil is a black vine weevil ..

i'll send you a pm with this info .. but i'm putting it here in case there are any other ppl interested in the amazing weevil .. who sometimes get a bad rap ..
