Weevils can be frightening
When viewed up close, an adult acorn weevil might appear scary. In reality you should only be scared of them if you are a shrub oak, as they limit the amount of successful acorns to sprout. Thankfully though, They have many predators, including temnothorax ants or acorn spiders. Which helps manage this problem.
AP photography, POTW #3, Theme: Thriller
This is my photo of the week for week #1. The word I chose for this image was texture. I think this image does a great job at comparing different levels of texture. I attempted to remove as much texture as I could from the background to add to the subject.
More about the subject; This is an Odontomachus monticola trap Jaw ant. It is from my collection of specimens, I used to have a colony of these but sadly they passed away, so I preserved them. I did my best to attempt to spread this specimen.
