This beautiful crysalis will be a Monarch butterfly soon. Hopefully before it gets too cold.

Bad guy weevil bug, of unknown specific type. So cute! Found on a car in the lot at work.

Lovely!

Well, the chrysalis is. And someone out there surely loves weevils...

I don't know the US fauna, but in Europe we have similar weevils - genus Curculio. The long rostrum is tipped with the weevil's jaws. It enables it to bite into a hazel nut see and then eat the nut inside.
