When I re-did my blog background, had a few pictures to pick from. These are a couple that I didn't use, but I may use them in the future.
A teeny-tiny grasshopper nymph on a bright red zinnia. This picture, while taken just the other day, says "summer", and I wanted something more fall-like.
And I just might switch to this lovely mantis.
I love her creamy color.
In this shot, you can see a little crumb of the bug she had eaten.
