Yellow weevil with black head. The poor thing flew into the hedge row and ran into a branch of "stick tight" (i don't have an exact ID on the species of invasive vine that has taken over parts of the gardens and along the edges of the hedge row). The weevil as you can see here got it's wing caught on the sharp hairs of this invasive plant species. After photographing the weevil and realizing his precarious situation, I lifted him off of the stick tight so that he wouldn't sustain anymore grievous damage to his wing.
This particular weevil is called the Rhubarb Weevil. Which would explain why it's in my yard. We have several circular plots of rhubarb growing in the yard. :-D
A weevil is any beetle from the Curculionoidea superfamily. They are usually small, less than 6 millimetres (0.24 in), and herbivorous. There are over 60,000 species in several families, mostly in the family Curculionidae (the true weevils). Some other beetles, although not closely related, bear the name "weevil", such as the biscuit weevil (Stegobium paniceum), which belongs to the family Anobiidae. Many weevils are damaging to crops. The grain or wheat weevil (Sitophilus granarius) damages stored grain. The boll weevil (Anthonomus grandis) attacks cotton crops. It lays its eggs inside cotton bolls, and the young weevils eat their way out. Weevils are often found in dry foods including nuts and seeds, cereal and grain products, such as pancake mix. In the domestic setting, they are most likely to be observed when a bag of flour is opened. Their presence is often indicated by the granules of the infested item sticking together in strings, as if caught in a cobweb. "wiki" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weevil
