The Evil Weevil

Created 10/12/11 07:07 | Last change 10/12/11 07:31
It's Spring & the bugs are out in full force. My dad found this Prong Tailed Weevil (Hipporrhinus furvus) in the garden & kept it for me to shoot. I've been looking for a larger one for a while with no luck & was keen to get close & personal with this little guy (was about an inch long). I was wondering what to put him on as the bare table or black is getting a bit tired (decided to do a few of those anyway). I was given a small tree as a gift from a workshop in Elgin & had nice red leaves & was the perfect size for my "set". As with any type of animal, trying to get the weevil to do what I wanted was not happening, so I just let him do his own thing & left him on the tree for a bit while I processed the 1st batch & when I went back he had calmed down & was sitting in a nice spot for me & got some of my favourites in that session. I love the weevil face with the long snout & round face, they have so much character & are cute in their own strange way.
