Mind you, ever since the snake incident, my view of suburbia has taken on a new dimension and I am ever vigilant in case a tiger has escaped from the zoo - I know it would find me. It makes you look at the back yard with new eyes. Take this week for instance. There staring in through the kitchen window was this large brown grasshopper.
He appeared very keen to come in for a visit, but I gently persuaded him that outdoors was much healthier for him. He seemed happy enough with the verdict and even cast a nice shadow for me.
Oh dear, I hope he wasn't trying to escape from a bird and I sent him to his peril... Nah.
And now it's time to go to Hey Harriet's blog for some really great shadow shots.
