Like number 3 buses....

I've been wanting to see the weevil that is Platyrhinus resinosus for a couple of years now. Pretty much since I first laid eyes on a photo of it on Facebook.

I finally caught up with one on a woodpile at work last week, but only had a phone to take a quick and frankly, badly out of focus snap.

I went for a walk today around Wicken Fen and found another sat out on some rotting logs. Incredibly well camouflaged but as I had a slightly better camera to hand I managed to fire off a few frames, before leaving this particular individual to carry on looking gnarly.
