Standing out

August 13, 2007

Spotted this little guy on the way to work last week.  It was hot but the grass was still a little bit green.  Now, the grass is all brown (even trees are dropping leaves though fall is a ways off) – and all the grasshoppers I see now are brown.  It could be camouflage though landing on a nice white concrete post wasn’t exactly inconspicuous.

    How do grasshoppers change their color?  One of the great mysteries of nature, still waiting to be solved.

    It’s not a grasshopper, it’s a katydid. They are always green.
