Sweet Alyssum Surprise

Mother Nature can be quite the trickster. The other day I was snapping "bee's view" shots of various flowers in the garden. When I later opened them on my computer, I noticed something in this sweet alyssum that I hadn't seen when I was taking the photos. See the funny blob that I circled here? Well, in one of the other shots it is much more clear... especially blown up like this...

A teeny tiny baby grasshopper! We do generally have a batch of baby grasshoppers in our yard every year, but I don't usually notice them until they get a bit larger than this. What fun!


  1. I just read the Robert Louis Stevenson quote..about travel..that's me...I love to truck, boat, camper..whatever..I just love to go.

  2. Yes! I get depressed when I have to return home, even though I love home too.

  3. What a cutie! I've never seen a grasshopper so tiny. That must have been a sweet surprise for you. :)

  4. What great shots! You must have a good camera.....

    Have a nice day!
