When photographing at MacLeod Field this past weekend, the grasshopper, I came across this little guy. At first I saw a companion but mistook it for a leaf and when I took a closer look it hopped away. But this one remained and I got to study it a bit.
The telltale ‘x’ gives it away.
It was fairly patient with me and I was able to get low and try a few angles. This was my preferred view.
