Weevil and Dance fly in the garden

The garden seems to have burst into life again. I've spotted my Rose Sawflies are back laying eggs on the roses and all kinds of mini beasts are scurrying around.

This Black Vine Weevil (Otiorhynchus sulcatus) was one of a pair that I found on my Lupins. They seemed to be a bit shy of the camera and moved away whenever I got too close.
This small Dance Fly (Platypalpus hybotidae) was taking a rest on the rose bush. The rose bush always seems to attract a resting flies and thus small spiders awaiting their prey.
