Pesky little bug. Hopefully this stays in shape.

And, a beautiful palm tree it is, too! May it live a long and healthy life. :)

Beautiful. May the palm live long and prosper.
Here in Meitar we lose a few to the weevil but still the Local Council keeps planting more palms. :/

Purtroppo quell'insetto ha fatto molte stragi...speriamo che almeno questa resista. Ciao, Arianna
