Lynne has said exactly what I feel too, Carol: excellent shots, the detail outstanding and with the insect and it's colour coordinated 'perch' set against the blue of the sky, you have three very striking and professional images.

Amazing contrast of all the three images, Carol. For me the grass looks more attractive than the cricket. -Raja.

Sorry no comments today. I was away all morning. Got back early afternoon and had rain like I have never seen before, thunder and Lightening.
My wife is travelling back from Hexham and the bus is over an hour late. The roads are flooded en route and the bus driver decided to turn and try a different route. the bus got stuck on the grass verge and he cannot move it. The traffic is held up in both directions and I cannot get through to pick her up. I am now awaiting the next phone call to find out her whereabouts.
If she doesn't get back soon I just know Know how I will get my tea.......

Angela has just phoned . The bus is now back on the road but is travelling back towards Hexham so she just has not got a clue what is happening.

Outstanding macro photography Carol, the clarity is exceptional and the clear blue sky makes the perfect background. A real pity I can't give you an award for this one as it is one of your very best images and fully deserves all the accolades it has received from your peers on here. You did well to receive one from the Somerset Ciderhead as he does not give these away lightlySmile
