This fella was trying to walk on water in the pool, so had to be duly fished out and photographed before releasing into the parched grass.

Just as well you around with your fishing net, Carol: and what detail you have recorded in these two shots of this 'aquatic grasshopper'.
Two excellent shots with the white b/g here so effective too.

Two beautiful shots. Sadly, we don't have a parched grass problem here, just a waterlogged grass problem!

A quite extraordinary macro/close up photograph Carol, in which you have managed to captured the gorgeous colours and immense detail in the rather beautiful Grasshopper participating in an earlier morning water-sporting activity, so very well indeed. Version II for me please...

It was trying to work a miracle by walking on water, but probably thought it was more of a miracle that a great big net came down from above and lifted it out of the poolGrin.
