Awe - and he's blending in every nicely!! What a find, Astrid, with that camouflage!
Picturit: I was surprised it did not move when I zoomed in on him/her. Maybe an inch big....
Just like a chameleon Astrid...Well spotted and captured!
One would never believe it could possibly be alive!!!
Picturit: I took this while I waited for you and Bob to come back with the red car... it was when I spotted this little jumper.
Elle a mis sa tenue de camouflage.

It's trying to blend in with its landscape and appears to be made from rusty metal! Well seen.
It must be tough to make it all the way for this creature, I suppose it just keeps its fingers crossed Astrid.
Picturit: I saw also some toes crossed too wink
This may be his graveyard. Excellent macro. What camouflage.

Great close-up Astrid. Did you fall from the bicycle and while you were on ground level you noticed this grass-less grasshopper.
Picturit: I was waiting for Ginnie and a friend coming back by car. I saw this one jump from the grass onto the road...
The bike and falling down would make a great story though...
So well spotted! Great eye!
It's definitely well camouflaged.
It is well camouflaged so as not to be seen by passing cars.....oh
one little electrical impulse to the muscles of his hind legs and he would have made a huge leap, Astrid.
Picturit: I saw it jump and that was h i g h....
Just a hop skip and jump from safety
I hope he got across safely.
He looks like he's made out of iron. Good find and take.
