Last week Grant called me to photograph a grasshopper on the paving.
A handsome fellow ...
...who obliged me by showing off the detail on his legs
And when I stood over it for a clearer view, I saw the other hind leg was missing
This handicap didn't deter it when hopping off into the grass next to the paving
Yesterday while Rina and I sat on the patio, we watched a Common Fiscal on a camel thorn tree. As I focused on it, we saw it was eating a meal which it had hooked onto a thorn as these birds are wont to do.
When I downloaded this photo, we all tried to identify this bird's meal. The conclusion we arrived at was that it was a baby mouse
I'm linking my post to Saturday Critters with Eileen here
Happy Saturday to you all!
