Lunch on the patio was interrupted today when a few late season grasshoppers kept landing on the table.  They were bright green having just come from munching on a bush that was revived by the latest rain.  In the time it took to go inside and get the camera one of them jumped to the fencing surrounding the patio.  In less than a minute the insect went from bright green to the striated colors of the wood that it landed upon.  A bit later it hopped off to munch on something else.  Time to repaint the patio fence.

That's one thing I don't see anymore - grasshoppers. As a child I spent hours trying to catch them across from my parents old house. It almost looks man made the one you've digitally captured.
