Day 163 - Gray Bird Grasshopper


I only had a couple of minutes before we had to leave for church tonight to run outside and see if I could find something to photograph. I no sooner stepped outside and saw this guy in the bushes. Love it when that happens. I got off a few shots and then he started to escape me. Being the girl that I am I didn't want to touch him so hubs came to the rescue and got him back out in the open for me. We were quite the sight running around after this guy. Pretty funny.

Ok, 3 reminders:
1. Don't forget to get your photo in for Favorite Photo of the Week Contest before tomorrow night.
2. If you have a Twitter account, come follow me!
3. Please go vote for me again on Circle of Moms!

I could touch them either. I remember my grandfather fishing with them when I was young.
Your persistence paid off for a really great macro!
