Animal of the Day - 10.27.2010











A grasshopper that hopped on the car window while at a gas station. I had my girlfriend drive over to a grassy area next to the station so it could be a bit safer as I took these pictures (as you can see in the background). Afterwards I got out and put it out in the grass.

  1. These are pretty common in the summer months of Texas. There's a store nearby that would have quite a few at the entrance. I would sit in the car and watch kids and women scream when they jumped on them. I'd often find them in stores hopping around the aisles. They might've been shopping, but I would try to catch them and release them outside.
