Unexpected beauty

While hiding in the tall grass last week watching and photographing the ospreys near St. Anthony, Idaho, I was visited by some unexpected critters that added beauty to my day.
I love all the different shades of green created by this immature grasshopper as it sat on blades of grass, eating away.

Two wood-nymph butterflies kept cavorting around me, chasing each other only this one was brave enough to land near me to enjoy its beauty.

What grand things we have to enjoy if we will but take the time and slow down our busy lives.

So true, there's beauty everywhere in nature. So much to discover and enjoy, and so little time. Beautiful photos!
