Two Spined Weevil

Two Spined Weevil

The weather started out with high cloud, just ideal for walking, but then it turned into drizzle and rain, clearing again, sort of, when we had reached the lookout point on the Hillary Trail, just above Karekare. A two spined weevil shared our elevated spot. The view in sunshine (without insect life) was shown earlier.

Panatahi Island and the Whatipu wetlands and sands in the distance.

  1. That is an interesting insect, but I love the way you can still see the waves beyond it!!

  2. I really like the beautiful blurred scenery in the background and the sharply in-focus weevil. Great capture.
