Coming in for a landing

I zoomed in close to get a shot of a lovely thistle boom when this insect buzzed into the frame preparing to land. I’m not sure what it is, but that long needle nose is a little intimidating.

Fantastic capture! I don't know what the bug is either but you are right about the 'nose'! :-)

Yikes! I hope that is only for gathering pollen and not for stinging. Great close up shot!

That nose would make a mosquito envious for its bloodsucking ability!
