Woof woof

Is it just me or is there something rather dog-like about this weevil? I think it's the snout. I've always thought that weevils can be very photogenic, almost cute perhaps, and I often keep an eye out for them as a result. This one, I think, is a Pea Weevil (Sitona lineatus), approximately 5mm in length.

Photographed using a Canon 60D with Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens, f11, 1/160, ISO 100, with diffused MT-24EX flashgun.
