A baby grasshopper made my day...

I visit my grandmother once a week and every time I pull into the driveway I think, "Darn! I forgot the camera AGAIN!" When I got there this week it had just rained and the lighting was great for macro shots. I figured I'd just take a few with my cell phone for the heck of it and...

Look at those drops of water! And the baby grasshopper or cricket or whatever it is! I can not believe that I got this kind of detail with my cell phone! I've been playing around with the pic and am pretty sure I can blow it up to a 16"x20" and still get perfect detail and definition... which is exactly what I plan on doing with it. I'm thinking it'll go great in that craft room. Here's a couple more...
I like how there is a vine restraining the tiger lily in back from opening fully.
In other news, I've just been painting and attempting my first distressed finish for a project in the kitchen and sanding and varnishing that chest/trunk I bought last week.

He definitely wins the award for cutest insect! My daughter is really into creepy crawly things right now - I just know she'd love to spot something like this! I'm more of flower gal, myself. Not so much into the insects.
