Thank you Neil and Lauren! These Weevils are quite comical looking. It's hard to imagine the females using the long beak to bore into hard nuts and acorns.
Lauren, I never thought to add the taxonomy names to the tags. I really appreciate the suggestion! I'll definitely start adding them.

He's a funny little guy. And he has antennae on his beak which looks like a long nose. How amazing! Great spotting, Cindy.

You should add to your tags the scientific and common names so that people can find your pictures, ie: add Curculio, Acorn Weevil, Curculionidae, etc.
