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".

Great close-up photos, Melissa.

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!
