I found this wonderful pair of field grasshoppers sunning themselves on my shed. Yes I know it needs re-painting. Presumably a female on the left and a male on the right, they were slowly sidling up to one another over the course of several minutes, though I don't know what happened next as I had to leave the scene.

Happily, I had my proper camera with macro lens to hand, so was able to get some proper non-iPhone shots with lots of close-up detail. You can tell it's a field grasshopper by the hairy underside, amongst other things. Click to see a larger version of the picture below and you can just about see that.
