Boll Weevil Monument in Enterprise, Alabama

After the boll weevil destroyed cotton farming in Alabama, agriculture diversified. In gratitude the citizens of Enterprise erected this monument.

It's not a great photo, but you can see the weevil.

I'm looking for a better picture. But the statue is chalk white and photographs badly in sunlight, and a lot of the photos crop out the crowning weevil. Why? What use is a weevil monument without the weevil?
