Camera Critters

Yesterday I went out into Musashi's Garden to take some shots of the newly blooming zinnias.

This is what I found.

What's that in the zinnia?

Who is that peaking around the corner?

Zinnia and Grasshopper

Come out, come out. Whoever you are!

Grasshopper and Zinnia

There you are!

Happy holiday weekend everyone.
Stay safe, enjoy and remember what Memorial Day is all about.

Joy to You!

You did well to see that little green monster. It is so cool I'm afraid I didn't look at the flower much.

Hey Snap! There's an example of being in the right place at the right time... with your camera turned on. So nice of the little critter to come out for his glamor shot. :)

Wow! Great shot of the grasshopper!

That is some green critter you found there, Snap !
I love Zinnias - something so hardy and bright about them.
I hope you and Mr. Dragon have a peaceful long weekend too.
Big Love !

Not too many in my garden. I always here them before I see them. Cute little critters.

Pretty green bug! Lovely shot.

What a cute sequence of photos!

Barb said...

Sometimes the unplanned is the best! The zinnia alone makes a wonderful photo but with the addition of the grasshopper - a show stopper! That color zinnia is just delicious - I do hope the seeds I planted in Denver have sprouted!

Ebie said...

Its the grasshopper! Little things come in unsuspected places. Love that zinnia!
