A grasshopper in my lilac?



Summer evenings in Norway have a special warm light that is well suited for many subjects, including flowers. This evening I found that our white lilac had a visitor (actually two...). I have a feeling that it is some kind of grasshopper, but is it? And what is it doing?

Tror det er det ja. En svær en? Den koser seg i kveldssola, tror jeg, det gjør den jammen rett i også.

Flott macro.

Definitely some grasshopper cousin. I got some great bug shots on our camping trip. I think you inspired me to try macros.

Beautiful...and does it sound too weird to say that the white lilac flowers remind me a little of popcorn. :)

Let's see if this third try to comment will work without receiving a 404 error. What is the dotted line coming from this creepy creature's front leg? An excellent shot of a not favorite subject.
