reconnect with nature....a little backyard macro







Wild geraniums I brought down from the mountains and one of the grasshoppers that eats my hollyhocks. Cute little guy, isn't he?

Linking up with Chrisy at living a good north coast life and sharing a little of the natural world around us.

Linking up with Laura at Shine the Divine for I Heart Macro week 54.

    1. Thank you. I transplanted the mountain plants specifically so I could photograph them. :)

  2. I like fushia and lime green hoppers.
    I bet it smells good after your recent rain. :)

    1. A few too many lime green hoppers. It's like a plague out here! Oh, and more rain predicted for today. Yay!!

  3. Oh. My. Word. These photographs are amazing Julie.
    So the geraniums are coping well in their new environment? I guess there's a big difference in climate and soils between the desert and the mountains? Great idea to bring a bit of those mountains back home with you though!
    As always thanks for continuing to link up with Reconnect with Nature, your support means a great deal to me. xx

    1. Thank you! The geraniums are going crazy in the yard. They have taken over, but I like it. xx

  4. That geranium is such a brilliant color!! Aren't macro lenses the best?? I have to use mine more often. Right now it's usually used just for taking photos of things I'm listing in my Etsy shops. : ) xoxo

    1. The mountain transplants do surprisingly well in the yard. The growing season is longer and they just look so good!!
