Look who arrived in our back yard this week.
A grasshopper was resting on a plant.
Aren't the shapes and textures fascinating?
I'm feeling inspired to try my hand at some insect art. Fortunately, there are tutorials on how to do almost anything:
Grasshopper Drawing Lesson, an Exploring Nature Educational Resource
How to Draw a Grasshopper (page has numerous ads)
If you give insect art a try, let me know. I'll share the results next week.
