The bizzare face of a weevil may appear frightening to some people. In reality nobody except farmers should be afraid of them because they consume plant material. This one is an acorn weevil (curculio sp.), so It should only be feared by acorn collectors. AP Photo, Photo of the week 3

This image of an acorn weevil within it's home acorn does a good job of representing fall especially due to it's colors. AP photo, POTW 2

Photo III, 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.

Photo Of The Week

This is a showcase of all of my photos of the week. Each week I am given 7 words, and we are tasked with taking a photo relating to one or more of  those words. Each photo will have the word chosen in the description. When applicable I will include insects in my photo of the week, as insects are my passion and they are what I love to photograph.
