This funny bug captured my attention as soon as I saw him and what a great excuse to use my macro setting. If you have any idea what this mysterious bug is, I would love to know. I have looked in my British wildlife book and no sign of anything similar so please let me know your thoughts. I just think he looks like a weird little almond on legs.
UPDATE: I have now been informed that this bug is a Vine Weevil (thanks to the Natural History Museum). Unfortunately I also discovered they are a bit of a pest in the garden, as he munches through all the plants and flowers. Let's hope for the garden's sake that I don't find any more.
