What a gorgeous flower, Annette, one I've never seen but would love to. A very pleasing grasshopper, too, nicely marked and well captured. Carol

A stunning flower wonderfully captured, whilst the rather strange looking creature fascinates me.

Both great images but of course V1 is so very beautiful, there never was any doubt as to my favourite! How wonderful to find in a canal. Over here it would most likely be a discarded supermarket trolly!

Two excellent captures, Annette: love that unusual bloom at V 1......beautiful soft lighting and very fine detail and textures in the petals.
And a fine macro shot of the 'hopper'.

Good close up of the hopper and wonderful image of the lotus flower.
Very sharp and that centre is like a miniature watering can.
Nice images. V1 for me.

2 Feb 2013 10:02AM that's a great shot of that beautiful lotus (I LOVE loti and have always found them very photogenic too), Annette. Good capture of that large grasshopper too. I haven't seen one in ages. We used to get 'em every now and then when I was a kid. We always called 'em locusts 'cos of their size. I just Googled 'locust' and found out that it's a swarming phase of a type of grasshopper! You've made me learn something new Smile

Lovely shots Annette. These are quite abundant over there but are taken for granted by non-photographers. I agree with the others that flowers are very photogenic.
