Lotus in bloom. Peeps in the mudflats (unpictured).
Red-winged blackbirds in the lotuses.
Plus the following weirdness below. I thought grasshopper flight was strictly utilitarian. I didn't know it had display value as well. In the video below, watch the fluttering grasshopper (if you listen closely you can even hear it fluttering like a little helicopter). Then watch two grasshoppers in engage in some sort of aggressive leg lifting dialogue.
