You may have to squint a little to see the weevil on the left. He blends with the center of this B-E-S just enough to be difficult to spot at first glance.

Think I'll post several more insects to be sure I meet my quota of posts for the day.
A grasshopper that is not well separated from the background.

Tiny little bug, no more than 3mm long, and this is a true bug = Heteroptera. You can see the stylet folded up against its abdomen.

Another dragonfly. I had an awful - - AWFUL! -- time getting this one in focus. The grass stalk was blowing every which way. This is the best of about 30 images I took, and many of the discards weren't even close. Maybe I should have saved and posted them as abstracts.

Cross-post in a (modest) selection of threads - we do have to get to at least 45k collectively and 180 personally!

Normal service can be resumed in September...
