Apionids are a wonderful family of teardrop shaped weevils with beautifully striated wing cases and long, delicate snouts. If Terry Gilliam ever decided to design a beetle, he might come up with something like an Apionid. They are pretty common, but you've probably never noticed them because they are mostly tiny, drab and flightless.

 

The majority of my pictures are created in response to daily challenges set by the wonderful members of the We're Here group. None of them should be taken seriously (the photos that is, I can't speak for the WH members). Any resemblances between my pictures and my actual life are entirely coincidental.

 

Thank you for visiting. If you stop long enough for a chat, I'll be able to tell you apart from the tedious contact collectors. If not, I'm afraid a response is less likely. I do try to make a return visit, but forgive me if I'm slow to get around to you. I lose track when things get busy.

 

This is where I politely ask people to let me know if they want to use one of my images for anything. But it is futile, they never read this stuff and will steal it anyway. Bastards.

I've just had the pleasure of stumbling across this most excellent Artist. Why am I so late to this party? It's all right here: humor, technical skill, quirkiness, an eye for detail along with cultural references tossed on their ears.

I've just had the pleasure of stumbling across this most excellent Artist. Why am I so late to this party? It's all right here: humor, technical skill, quirkiness, an eye for detail along with cultural references tossed on their ears. I found myself chuckling and gasping, out loud with each image I viewed; from the sublime to the ridiculous, the delightfully macabre, and not to mention the wry and ironic. How wonderful to have Apionid on this planet, at this time.

I can't believe I am the first to write a testimonial for this lady who creates some of the most original images I have seen on flickr. Her talent is beyond belief, check her out, and if you don't make her one of your contacts I feel sorry for you.
