Sunday Stills - Elements

This week's Sunday Stills challenge - the elements. Ed challenged us to find the four elements plus the fifth. I had to really think about this one.

Earth
A hiking trail in Green Lane Park from ground level

Air
The Perkiomen Creek during a thick fog in the early morning.
The fog was so thick you could feel the air.

Fire
A match flaring from a lit candle. I managed to not burn myself or the camera.

Water
We've had thunderstorms and torrential rain which caused the Perkiomen Creek to flood its banks. This is a different branch of the creek from the photo above.

And the last element -
Love...
Grasshopper love. Craig scooped these two up out of the grass.
They were hopping around together.

Great fog shot. Very nice.

I love your fog photo, very nice.

Once,(not when they were mating) I caught two praying mantises, and they mated just like your grass hoppers. Very eye opening to the school kids.
