I was doing a little work in the yard and I spotted a bright green grasshopper that stood out like a sore thumb on a dead shrub. I've been trying to learn to take better photos, so I went and got my camera. It forced me to take a real closer look, and I was surprised by what I saw. How many grasshoppers do you see in these photos (click for larger images)?
I never would have noticed the beige grasshopper (which was definitely alive and hopping) if I hadn't been peering so closely to frame my photos. It makes me wonder what other critters that have been right under my nose that I've completely overlooked. Tags: nature, camoflage, garden
