It's a beautiful picture! But I must admit I can't work the grasshopper out - which way is its head? Ours look very differently, you can see pictures in one of my older posts:

Wonderful haiku and photo.

Is he a grasshopper or, perhaps, a praying mantis? Super photo whichever.

Nice shot of a praying mantis.

Librarian, I messed up big time when I first posted; grasshoppers are prevalent here. Praying mantis are not. That's why you couldn't figure him out!
Graham, mea culpa! I discovered the mistake in identity before I read your comment. Of course, you are right!

Beautiful picture, and the yellow is a perfect contrast!

Perfect color combo and another reminder that nature is slowing down as it grows colder.
