Artist's Description

As I took this photograph this morning, I couldn’t help but think of a verse I used to know about Grasshopper Green, so I looked it up.
Photographed in my butterfly garden, *Ste. Rita, Manitoba, Canada.
Canon EOS 60D; Canon 100mm macro lens

Grasshopper Green is a comical chap;
He lives on the best of fare.
Bright little trousers, jacket and cap,
These are his summer wear.
Out in the meadow he loves to go,
Playing away in the sun;
Its hopperty, skipperty, high and low—
Summer’s the time for fun.

Grasshopper Green has a dozen wee boys,
And soon as their legs grow strong
Each of them joins in his frolicsome joys,
Singing his merry song.
Under the hedge in a happy row
Soon as the day has begun
Its hopperty, skipperty, high and low—
Summer’s the time for fun.

Grasshopper Green has a quaint little house.
It’s under the hedge so gay.
Grandmother Spider, as still as a mouse,
Watches him over the way.
Gladly he ‘s calling the children, I know,
Out in the beautiful sun;
It’s hopperty, skipperty, high and low—
Summer’s the time for fun.
