Meadow Grasshopper (in pink!)

After a long and very hot day out with the camera yesterday, which was well rewarded with Goshawk photographs (watch this space!), today was a day for taking it easy. The dog still needed walking though, and I couldn't resist taking the camera with macro lens in case anything interesting turned up. I'm glad I did, as I
came across this very unusual and rare pink Meadow Grasshopper! The species itself is far from unusual, but the colouration, caused by a genetic abnormality makes it a little special.
