I’m ignoring the 14 inches of snow on the deck and the plops of snow blowing off the pine trees….. choosing instead to focus on the intrepid grasshopper that chose to hitch a ride with our friend Carl as we walked the trail at Lovers’ Key State Park.
He flew from the brush onto Carl’s sleeve and hopped up to his shoulder for a better view. He perched there for several minutes, posing handsomely while I photographed him on his adventure. Just as suddenly, he flew off into a new patch of brush and continued on his way. If he whispered a few soft words of advice to Carl, Carl’s keeping it to himself!
Yep, the snow’s still there!
