I never would have spotted this tiny weevil if not for the contrast between the pink flower and the green insect. 
I knew it would be a good find. They are most common the the Eastern US.  © Carol Davis, 7-17-2012

I think Red Butte Garden must get a lot of "immigrant" insects because they import plants from all
