the cloisonné center of helenium
captivates the grasshopper
nothing escapes beauty’s grasp

  1. A photograph worthy of inclusion in an edition of the ‘National Geographic’. Really beautiful composition, colour and capturing the wee beasty! Splendid feast for the eyes.


  2. Perfectly gorgeous… Methinks you may have a new camera; marvelous clarity. What a pleasure to see what your eye is seeing and translating. Thank you for images…and poetry. Simply beautiful.


  3. Unfortunately the grass hopper is contemplating a tasty and colourful meal, rather than appreciating the beauty of his landing place. Beautiful shot! The petals look like they have been enamelled, or cloisonnéd.
