  1. Wow, I love the close-up of the face in the first shot and the color combo of the green grasshopper and the orange canna is striking!

  4. Reminds me of the cricket in Mulan. Even has an oriental feel to the photos.

  13. Thank you! πŸ™‚
    This is one of the few cannas left, after Greg mowed down the other ones (this one is under a tree) and I went outside to photograph it, but when I saw the grasshopper, I photographed him instead.

    Jewel, this was taken a while ago (June?). Everything is pretty much dead here now from all the heat and no rain.

    Doreen, I KNEW you would mention vacation pics! I was only able to go through six (out of 15) days and delete the non-keepers. Need to finish weeding out and then I will start editing. Going to be a while longer, sorry!
