Weevil Wednesday - Seeing Red

Photographed in Heredia, Costa Rica | August 2011.


When I spotted a red insect, I figured it was a beetle - I was rather surprised though when a closer look revealed it was a weevil. There are plenty of red leaf beetles, but this is the first red weevil I've seen. He wasn't a very cooperative subject - he kept going under the leaf to hide from me (see photo in comments).
