Tiny 5mm Grasshopper - I think!

By Humblebee
I had just tried to capture a hoverfly but the wind is still quite ferocious and it flew off as I clicked result ... blur Wink then I spotted this weeny little bug on another flower, one not quite open - this is the 2nd shot and I was surprised because of its minuscule size to see it looks like a grasshopper ... If I am wrong I am sure some kind soul will let me know Grin

Many thanks everyone for your lovely comments and votes on my upload yesterday, all are most welcome ... Carol Grin

Herman, you will have to share the car with me, and Rob, the yellow one is yours Wink and Dave, these traction engines are amazingly well balanced and very sturdy - in v6 it would have to be, but I did take a little licence with this shot, I removed the 'cart/seat' attached at the rear ... of the traction engine that is Wink

I've got a much better idea Herman - I agree with the first six months, but think it better that I drive it down to you, just to make sure it arrives safe and sound Wink Wink Wink Thanks for your lovely comments on this weeny bug Grin

Hello, I get these crickets in my garden too, grand little fellows and that is a very good photograph, they do eat holes in the flower petals but they have to live too, nice one I like that. Camellia.Grin
