Camera Critters- Hiding Hopper!

Theres a grasshopper hiding in this glorious bloom. If you can't see him click the picture and take a look. Just like a grasshopper to be spending the day hiding in the pretty blooms, while the industrious ants below on the sidewalk are busy getting ready for winter.

This picture was taken in Nogales Arizona, just about a block from the Mexican border. I drove down to Nogales yesterday and picked up a few things from the little shops on the other side of the border. I was walking back, admiring the beautiful white blooms on this Crepe Myrtle, and there he was peering back at me. Isn't it amazing how he blends right in with the stems on the bloom?

If you hadn't mentioned the hopper I surely would have missed it, but once I knew one was there, I spotted those telltale skinny legs right away!
