“A Bug Beneath”

“A Bug Beneath”

“It’s just some instinct as old as fear: you seek the dark when you hide, you seek the light when the need to hide is gone. All the animals have it too.
― Cornell Woolrich

Here’s a slightly different composition of the bug that photobombed my daisy images a few days ago. This time it’s a bit closer image, with just the back of a single daisy and its resident beetle. I’m not sure what kind of beetle it is. I suppose the more macro photography I do the more I need to learn about the inevitable insects within the photos. I suspect this is some form of weevil, but would value the advice of anyone who knows for certain.

In the end, the composition with the bent flower stalk worked out well, revealing the underside of the daisy clearly as well as the beetle.
