Four Spined Weevil (Scolopterus sp.)

Living near the bush, encounters with all kinds of creatures are common. This four spined weevil (scolopterus sp.) landed on the window and cooperated just long enough for me to take its picture. In case you wonder about four spines: there are two spines pointing left and right in addition to the two obvious ones. I always enjoy double reflections.

  3. Double glazing makes for fascinating reflections, and you did very well to catch this photo so quickly.
