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.
