Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up

I have one apple tree, but it is prolific and drops more apples than I can keep up with. They are usually picked up, placed in a bucket and composted. Last August, I was fascinated by the flies, being attracted to a bucket of the fermenting apples.

While following a fly deeper into the bucket, I saw antennae emerging from a leaf among the apples.

Finally, the grasshopper emerged for a better look.

Not sure if it was the same one from the apple bucket, but a month later, I found this guy sunning himself on the underneath side of our deck steps.
