Yesterday was a glorious sunny day, so I set about tidying up the garden in preparation for leaving. I found it hard to trim things back when there are still some flowers around, like this lavender.
As I was examining it, out jumped this grasshopper on to the vine. Easily led astray, as I am, I picked up the camera and started snapping.
It flew into a bush where it was remarkably well camouflaged.
And another grashopper was making a noise about 100 times bigger than its body.
Basking in the sun sounds like a good idea. Sunny and 23 degrees C here today.
