Grateful Grasshopper 6/7/17

Little grasshoppers of different sizes hopped away when I tried to take their portraits.They seemed grateful that I didn’t pursue them.  It was early in the morning and the light was dim.  I felt grateful to get a couple of photos that weren’t blurred.

Flashback Wednesday, August 1, 2012 – I love the pinks and subtle oranges of this rose in my neighbors’ yard. I also love the shapes. Together they remind me of conch shells 🙂

August 1, 2013 sigFriday, August 1, 2014 – I love seeing the dragonflies cruising down the street.  Today I had one resting on mullein.  I also have a pair of mating carder bees and a couple of bumblebees.
