This grasshopper was in my driveway this morning. I felt kind of bad for him because his wings are still too small for him to fly and his walk was more of a stumble, stumble, short hop and each time he hopped he would land on his side and have to struggle back to his feet. I think despite his size (approximately 3 inches long), he may have been very young. We have a lot of birds so I helped him into a nearby tree and took this picture. I know some people are a little creeped out by insects but I just love the colors and am fascinated by the remarkableness of creatures in nature such as this.
