Plenty of hoppers around in this hot weather, but not much else!
Back to the hospital this morning, hopefully there will be a doctor in attendance and I will get some attention this time!

Excellent detail in each of the four versions, Carol, and in V 2 you seem to have caught its attention somewhat. I'm rather taken with the striped eye lenses in this insect. As always your offerings are immaculate.

More camouflage as a work of art - V2 is particularly beautiful, it seems as though there's interaction, a conversation going on.

We have lost our summer weather at the moment, and blustery showers seem the order of the day. As our lavender is in full bloom yours is fading but it makes a lovely perch for this hopper. Good look at the hospital. Sylvia
