Photo of the Day – Steady Focus, Grasshopper

I went for a rather nice hike today. We stopped for lunch and had a picnic in the car and I happened to look at the windshield and found this nice little friend had stopped by for a visit. Luckily I had the presence of mind to grab the camera first and ask questions later….

Photo of the Day – Contrasting Art
