11.18.2020 Wednesday Warmth

I am organizing the archives on this cold (31°F) November morning.  Not as cold as it will be tonight (16°F) and only a little colder than today’s high (35°F) but a chilly start. Bentley crawled back under the covers after his morning’s visit outdoors.

This red-legged grasshopper-Melanoplus femurrubrum offers a little memory of summer comfort.

    Grasshoppers, katydids, and crickets look so wonderfully mechanical, almost steam-punk. Super shot.

  3. The red femurs harmonize with the red traces on the plant.

    Indeed the grasshopper is but a memory of summer. This image is nicely done – great background with little rust-colored spots, and bright green foliage to showcase this handsome fella.

    Could it be that those little red spots are nymphs of some sort? or a fully grown teeny-tiny insect? They looked three-dimensional to me when I did the double-enlargement. Maybe it’s too cold up there now for such things. In any event, the grasshopper himself is quite handsome.
