My fortnight lily is going out of control! This is the first time I’ve had so many flowers blooming at 1 time, I haven’t even attempted to count them all, but it looks upwards of 40!! Guess who I saw eating the broad leaves of the plant? Yep, the grasshopper I talked to yesterday. It was pretty cool as I stood there and watched it eat, I reminded it that it was not to eat the flowers. I did notice some of the tips of the flowers were eaten, but I don’t know if s/he ate them before or after my talk yesterday.

Today’s photo is the jpg version. Somehow my sensor has something other than dirt on it and its affecting all of my photos at f/8 or higher. I ordered a sensor cleaning kit about an hour ago and hope I can clean off whatever spot is on there. With that said, that was why I used Affinity Photo, it has the best removal tool out of the different software I use (I cut the Adobe cord a couple of years ago and haven’t felt sorry for the decision).
