Grass Hooper on an Allium

This grass hooper just appeared one day and stayed all day basking in the sunshine! (I have no idea what type of grass hooper he is!)

Someone private messaged me to ask what this 'grasshopper' was - I went and investigated and its apparently a Speckled Bush Cricket - a female I think!

Yay! Crickets in the garden!!

your camera talents are being wasted.why not start doing weddings

19 Apr, 2012

 

Because I like bugs better! Actually I'm thinking of holding an exhibition in your house and all the GOY buddies can come take a look and you can feed them afternoon tea and scones! I think everyone would like that!

We could do a special Jubilee exhibition!

19 Apr, 2012

 

just name the day and date, all this lot on here would come along but they would all expect bottles of wine too

19 Apr, 2012

 

You may have just regretted you said that live on air! :D

19 Apr, 2012

 

and they would want Rhubarb and custard

19 Apr, 2012

 

Rhubarb, custard and wine???

19 Apr, 2012

 

Yummy pity I live so far away!

19 Apr, 2012

 

Neellan - don't panic about living so far away, I'm sure Yorkshire will send you a food parcel and I'll set you up with video networking so you can have a virtual walk through of the exhibition! (hee hee - I'm fully of good ideas!!!)

:D x

Sounds like a good idea to me - roll on :o)

Ps: Showed my daughter your super photos this morning she loved them especially this one :o)
