It reminds me of the thistle weevils I have seen...
...I also just wanted to add that you keep fooling me into thinking that you are using a DSLR. It must be painstaking work to get this kind of detail with a Powershot! I had my Canon Rebel XTi stolen a few months ago, and have had a bit experience - most bad - trying to use point and shoots.

Kudo's to you, but I am dying to get a DSLR again!

 
Thanks
It's easy, take a hundred images and delete 95! Just kidding (a little). I have had a few hard to shoot bugs (before I started figuring a few things out) that I shot close to 300 images because I wasn't happy with what I was getting. Now I get there a lot faster! (55 - but it was running pretty good)

I need to find a camera shop that will let me try/rent a used one for a weekend. I can't buy a DSLR without some test time.
