A side bonk for hump day

Happy Hump Day!

The little guy on top is the male grasshopper. Mating lasts from 45 minutes up to a day... This female walked away from me while I was taking these photos. She may have time to walk all the way around the block.

Praying mantis.... my "Raid".

  1. It gives a new meaning to “hump” day. :-)

    Great close-up photos, Melissa.

  3. I once got a photo of two giant tortoises doing the wild thing at the zoo. Weird! And strangely awkward. The crowd got a little hushed. Can’t explain that! Great shot, though…no pun intended. :-)

      It is funny to catch the act and see how they maneuver around their body parts!
