Nice image - beautiful green colors. Looks like a weevil.

He's definitely dressed to impress - in his sunday best suit! Nicely done in the windy conditions, Kostas.

Looks like a Nettle Weevil (Phyllobius pomaceus) to my old eyes, and although not a perfect shot lovely to see none the less. I like the simple composition and nicely aligned aspects it displays, and although ideally I'd prefer just a little more DOF especially for the head area this is still an image that made me smile - so thanks for a happy moment

All the best
