Five Minutes #4

November 20th...I am feeling a bit battered after my 212km  bicycle ride two days previously, and recovering from the physical trauma of being knocked off my bicycle by an imcompetent motorcyclist...I have some spare time at 0630 as I am not cycling...

 

I sit in the garden, near a patch of weeds, with a macro lens on my camera...here is a sample of what I find...

 

A small brown Hopper on a much-chewed leaf...

 

And, a small Green Hopper, a short hop away:

You are the maestro of the macro...smile
Ray: I try hard, Larry, but have much still to learn.
Fantastic shots, Ray! Unusual looking hoppers to my eye!
Ray: These are not the usual grasshoppers with the big heads, Elizabeth...I call them Pinhead Hoppers.

Drôle de bête, je ne connais pas
Ray: Ils sont assez communs en Thaïlande, Martine.

These critters are wonderful Ray, almost like invented toy things
Ray: They seem to be successful, Chris, but certainly look odd to my eye.
Bonjour Ray
Je crois bien n'en avoir jamais vu ..merci donc pour ces deux macros.
Bonne journée
Ray: Ils ont d'étranges têtes d'épingles, Claudine.

I never cease to be amazed at this parallel universe that you show us Ray.
Ray: There are lots of lovely critters in our garden, Chad.
Fine hoppers ....didn't realise they come in a choice of colours Ray
Ray: They also come in other variations, Bill...deep fried, stewed, BBQ'd...

We don't have grasshoppers that look like this, Ray. How are you doing now?
Ray: They are common in Thailand, Lisl, but I don't recall seeing them in Australia.

I am recovering...definitely getting some additional movement in my shoulder, and reduced pain...a couple more weeks and I should be good. I am riding again.
There's certainly enough to keep you occupied!
Ray: This series was shot within a 1 square metre area, Tom...there is plenty to find here!
What strange looking characters.
Ray: Quite odd-looking, Brian.
The heads are quite different from our grasshoppers'.
Ray: They are also quite unlike out grasshopper, Mary.
