Grasshopper and Moss

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Shots A green grasshopper rests aboard a red mushroom boat in a sea of moss. What Makes This a Photo of the Day? I like how this is simply what it is—color and texture playing off each other to create an eye-catching tableau. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor This photo and caption were submitted to Your Shot.
