Snug In A Bed of Queen Anne's Lace

Well, as usual summer seems to be ending when it's hardly begun but the signs are inescapable. Here's two in a cozy arrangement. Like many flowering plants the Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota) pictured above is going to seed now. I enjoy the look of these clusters of tiny, spiny seeds and while photographing them I came across this one with a grasshopper nestling inside. There are about 11,000 species of grasshopper so I am not going to attempt to identify this one.

This little creature looks snug and well-cushioned in that Queen Anne's bed.

I'm not a fan of grasshoppers but this is a really cute picture!
