Japanese Peach Weevil

This Japanese Peach Weevil was sitting on a leaf in the garden, directly below a peach tree. This species is a significant pest of peaches, pears, and apples. Unfortunately it was getting dark so I couldn’t get a decent photo, but I hope you can see the beautiful copper color of its elytra.
