This grasshopper is clearly on the fence. Which way will it jump?

Grasshopper on the Fence

The young desert tortoise –perhaps a bit larger than the palm of a hand– stopped by briefly, then went off into the tall grass. Sitting quietly next to it for a moment while taking photos was very peaceful, they have an ineffable deep and old animal-sense about them that I treasure, and their eye and head position language are expressive and endearing. Very simple and direct way to find out what nature really thinks of you.

The Leilia Hackberry Butterfly flew right at me from some brush and caromed off my shirtfront. It was brisk and breezy in those shadows; I suspected it was looking for warmth, so held out my hand. It climbed aboard and rode for a mile or so, down one wash and up another. I cupped my hand to block the wind as I went. I found it some grasses in sun with less wind and other butterflies feeding nearby. Photos taken with left hand wrapped across the top of the camera, not the easiest focusing and framing I’ve done.

As always, honored to spend time with my most estimable neighbors.
