Lone Grasshopper

Category: Nature

With wide open pastures all around big grasshoppers were flying everywhere. This grasshopper was located up near a major country road with cars flying by. After watching this bug for a while I noticed it could not only tell where I was and would try to hide, but could also tell which way a car was coming down the road. The grasshopper would go to the opposite side of the leaf from the on coming car so the air wouldn't blow the it off. Afterward it would craw back out into sunlight or continue to hide from me.

Location: China Grove North Carolina
