Such perfection in imperfection of the wilting rose. It's gorgeous and great shots of the little critters.

Very pretty captures, the roses may be wilting, but they're still beautiful and the lil critters are an added bonus!

Flowers are glorious in all stages! I don't think I've ever seen a grasshopper in a rose before. :)

I'm green with envy since you still have flowers!

Though already wilting, they still look so lovely. No wonder why these little critters are attracted to them.
