Wildlife Photography: Grasshopper




One lovely Sunday morning couple of months ago, I brought my daughter to a playground surrounded by greenery near our place. I was sitting on a blue bench watching her having a great time with other children. An angel must have whispered to me to check out the plant behind the bench. I found this baby grasshopper and switched my lens to macro right away.

  4. I don't understand why they don't let you look at critters? Surely they don't believe in old wives tails. Do they think your baby will be born with antennae? ROFL!!

    Love the picture!

  5. Super photo, Cher! I have so much enjoyed catching up on all your recent posts, family photos, and that gorgeous blossom "Pink Love". But best of all is to read about your joy as you await the (perfectly timed) birth of your new baby boy. I will certainly keep you, that precious new life, and your family in my prayers in coming weeks and months. Thanks for the personal shout-out; blogging friends are the best.
