Spring Is Hiding

Green in green: a hopper hides among the parsley stems.

Spring is hiding, but it’s on its way. Effective spring might be short-lived this year — I have a hunch it’s going to get really hot really fast — but it’s nice to see the season on the calendar officially. In the meanwhile I hopefully will get out a couple more times in search of some snow scorpionflies.

Regarding today’s photo, I’m not sure what kind of hopper this is, though that pointy snout may be diagnostic. I liked the contrasting greens in this one.
