What a cool insect!
I wonder why it evolved to look like that!
Great macro shot.
Excellent detail and sharpness.
Well done Steve.
Great capture of this large weevil, the Giraffe Weevil, a species totally new to me.
The image has a fine technical quality with the weevil almost totally sharp and set in a fine natural habitat.
Interesting note and I hope you can show us the male sometime!
Thanks for taking this from your archives to share with us,

Hi Steve, what a peculiar insect that you photographed very well with lovely colours amidst the natural habitat of the insect. I like the details rendered thanks to a great DOF. It is really a beautiful insect captured in great light. Thanks!
I just love really exotic looking insects and this one beats it all. A Giraffe weevil! You made an excellent choice with the light and the composition, all is sharp the contrasts good. Well done!
In a workshop version I tried to darken the background somewhat. I hope you find the effort useful.

foto come questa ci fanno riflettere sull'incredibile diversitÓ di specie e forme naturali esistenti.
Forse bizzarre in apparenza, ma ognuna delle quali Ŕ il risultato di lunghi processi evolutivi.
Complimenti per la splendida immagine.

A bizarre looking animal I see for the first time. The explanation is quite satisfying and it is very astonishing to learn they can attain that size indeed. Many tnx for share,
