Bug Weevil Scarab


Doodlewash August Prompt: Wheatfield. ‘Cause this is the kind of fellow that farmers don’t wanna see in their wheatfields!

This was identified as a bug weevil scarab on the reference photo. Did you know there are over 97, 000 species of weevil, and around 30,000 scarab beetles. I couldn’t find anything about a weevil scarab, so I’m not sure what this is. Not even sure it’s a bug.

But my husband said he liked bugs. In that tone that suggested he’d really like me to paint a bug for him. He wanted a bug, so he got a bug. Or a bug-like, weevil-like, scarab-like thing.

  1. I love your scarab weevil! However, since I used to find boll weevils in my boxes of farina back in the day when we lived in SW Kansas, I never found them to be charming, at all! You always make the ordinary so extraordinary!
