Yes, I know these are essentially the same photo, but I liked them both, and it's my blog, so here they are.  :)

I think of summer and spring being the time to shoot all the wildlife that wanders through our yard, but it seems like fall is vying for a spot as well. As long as they aren't in the house, I'm okay with that.


  1. Keeping the critters out of the house is always a bonus to having them around the house! Again, great clarity with this close up. I wonder if he finally jumped across at some point..!

  2. Wow! look at those eyes! Great close up!

  3. Thanks all! He was very fun to shoot because all the colors managed to work well together. We usually only get green grasshoppers here, so I was surprised to find him.

  4. Hello Heidi,
    These are very beautiful shots.
    Very nice this large grasshopper and he has a wonderful color.
    I hope for you that you could this big one out of your house,..bbrrrr..!!
    Well Done!!

    Greetings, Marco

  5. Your photos might one day convince me that creepy creatures aren't so bad. Very cool!

  6. Paige - Creepy crawly things make for great photographs! :)
