A Picture A Day(ish): Patience, Grasshopper (October 15)

Grasshopper at Whitnall Park. I briefly caught it before it hopped away and crawled up this stem. I used to catch grasshoppers a lot when I was a kid. This was one of the (very) brief moments of sunshine last weekend, and I like the nice warm brown tone of the whole photo.

Those of you who were around two years ago and saw the source of this entry's icon will find this scene strangely familiar. Unfortunately, the colors weren't nearly so vibrant this year -- I was way too early. Still, there were some nice patches.

On a smaller scale, though, there was some nice color.
