Hi, Pawel
This is the Spruce Pine Weevil Hylobius pinastri. A nicely sharp image showing the distinctive yellowish scales on the thorax and elytra that this species shares with the similar H. abietis, which also occurs in your country.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Very nice presentation of this beetle,in great sharpness and details.Beautiful natural colours.

Hallo Pawel
You captured this Spruce Pine Weevil beautifully showing the markings on its shield with great clarity. The angle in which you have captured it also shows good detail of the antennas and rather thick upper-legs. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Nice and sharp presentation of this interesting beetle.
