Broad-nosed Weevil - Sitona lineellus

One morning in late June I went out to pick some oregano and found what looked like a mini-hippopotamus. He looked like he was on a mission so I just took a couple of pics and let him carry on.

Montana Six-plume Moth - Alucita montana

At only about 10mm in size, this little moth flutters about quite gracefully. It's only when I photographed it that I saw its real beauty and understand how it got the last part of its name.
I found this one when we were down visiting southern Saskatchewan in September.
