What a pretty grasshopper! I found a huge praying mantis in the shrubs I was cleaning out oh...two weeks ago. I managed to get her to stay on one of the shrub stalks long enough to carry her across the yard and show her to my husband. It was so neat to watch her head move as she watched everything. Then I put her back. By the time I'd gotten my camera though, she'd hunkered down into the shrub and I just couldn't get a good shot.This one is wonderful!
How neat with the mantis -- I've only found one here, and got a few shots but they're very shy bugs.Mr. Hopper, on the other hand, showed no fear of me at all and practically posed for the camera. I think all grasshoppers are hams. :)
