Iris Weevil / Weisspunktiger Schwertlilienruessler / Mononychus punctumalbum

Even the short english name is longer than the critter. Usually they prefer the yellow flags, but this year it seemed different. There was jolly few iris at all.... / Sogar der kurze englischen Name ist laenger als das ganze Tierchen. Normalerweise stehen sie auf Gelbe Sumpfschwertlilie, aber dieses Jahr schien es anders. Es gab ohnehin sehr wenig Schwertlilien zu sehen.

Not all visitors are really becomming for blossoms. This was not a great year for the iris peeping tourism at Eriskirch. The straw meadows of the wetland are famous for the sea of blue flowers they usually become in spring. To me of course this was not huge travel in vain, as I live very near by. I hope next year I get the usual breathtaking vistas again, not a few bug infested solitary blossoms.
