Grasshoppers And More Pictures
I saw this bug fly into the air from a place in front of my foot. I always watch them carefully to find out where they land. This one is the first one that I was ever able to find after it found a good place to land. It thought it had a good hiding place from me among the weeds, but I guess it was wrong this time.
The good thing about these weeds are that they're tall and skinny, so this one moved with the weight of this bug. I was able to see exactly where the bug landed. I've been searching through these weeds quite a bit because many animals seem to like hiding out in them. Birds, bugs, frogs, snakes, and even cats.
The good thing is that I don't really have to go very far to get pictures. I can either choose to stay here around home or go to a nearby nature park. That much nature can be a bit overwhelming for someone like me who lived most of his life in a city.
It's taking me a bit to get used to that kind of thing. It was wonderful when I first got here, and it stayed that way. But I soon discovered that there was so much nature I didn't know what to do with it. Now I'm finally beginning to sort things out just a bit. Now I'm off to get those pictures!
