Yikes...

... or cute... I'm not sure.

If I thought that was a bird's face, I'd be sure it's cute. But it's an insect face, so... I'm not sure!

Click through to the contest winner, which is also an arthropod face... and quite gorgeous, but only because it doesn't feel alive at all.

Whew, for a minute there I thought a TSA scanner image of my partially shorn scrotum had been posted on the Internet.

"It's breathtaking, I suggest you try it."

Weevils are definitely cute. Destructive, but cute.

That's incredible.

Why anyone needs the concept of God to feel awe, when stuff like that exists, is beyond me.

But Crack...Feeling awe at the majesty of creation is exactly why men cannot seriously think that there is no God.

According to the caption, it is a weevil: (possibly Curculio nucum or Curculio glandium).

These are acorn weevils. C. glandium is the European form, and C. nucum is larger, about 1/2 inch.

Thus, Curculio glandium appears to be the lesser of the two weevils.

Meade said...

True, ErnieG, but it's widely known that it is C. glandium who rents his acorns from C. nucum, the, yep, you guessed it, lessor Curculionid.
