Beauties....

Have you ever heard the term 'get on your glad rags'--meaning get dressed up. Any time I see gladiolas I cannot help but wonder if the term glad rags came from them. They are just so beautiful.
And who would have ever thought a locust could turn into something so beautiful...well maybe they don't. But I love the color of this cicada. I was quite surprised to see it and quickly snapped a few shots. His green color is awesome.
