Living With Olympus BioScapes

Olympus BioScapes is a contest for videos and photographs of living organisms. Every year a series of compelling images are submitted and judged. The winners often include insects that have complex structures with interesting details. The Fourth Place in the 2014 BioScapes contest went to Dr. CSABA PINTÉR for his photo of mating Small Green Nettle Weevils, Phyllobius roboretanus. These weevils are common in Europe and England from Spring to Autumn. They are commonly seen on foliage of shrubs.
