Grasshopper Camouflage

grasshopper camouflaged on branch

Unbeknownst to me I was getting very close to this grasshopper when I was checking for new growth on that potato bush branch – until I realized I was face-to-face with this guy! I’m glad I didn’t spook him off! It was a challenge getting good contrast and detail on this picture because of the lighting at dusk and the fact that he looked like a branch and was hard to see. And because after a few seconds he flew over me… Can you tell he only has one jumper leg?
