A great shot of an odd pair!

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

A metal bird would be such a cool ally for a grasshopper. Those other birds wouldn't dare mess with him!

Nice picture, I love that pretty Grasshopper !!

Linda Kay said...

I can't imagine how you managed to capture that little grasshopper on the bird bath. He looks like he is changing color with the fall.

Brian King said...

The grasshopper is lucky he didn't get "picked up"! LOL!

LV said...

Even grasshoppers know the real thing. No dummy.

Karen S. said...

Very precious, when seen like this! Hehehe, hate it when they're attacking my garden goodies! But surprisingly, just a couple weeks ago during a warmer spell here I found a live grasshopper (just barely) but he was holding on tight to a rather dried up plant!

Stephanie Faris said...

Just hangin' out at the old watering hole!

rainfield61 said...

This is an "endangered" species.

Poor grasshopper needs all the pick-up lines he can come up with! :-) It seems that all kinds of animals show up at your birdbath.

Fantastic shot... absolutely cool...

Stephen Hayes said...

The cricket looks like the pool boy, here to do a bit of pool maintenance.

Robin Lamb said...

T, ever a lonely Grasshopper needs lovin!

edenhills said...

Nice shot. We had so many grasshoppers this summer/fall, I couldn't take a picture in the pasture without them.

Andrea Priebe said...

Wouldnt't he be surprised if the reflective grasshopper took him up on his pick up line. Lucky for him the bird isn't real or he would be the one being picked up. I often see insects drinking out of my birdbath, but we don't have many grasshoppers so this is a first. Fun post, Theresa ...

Andrea @ From The Sol

What's a nice (juicy) Grasshopper like you doing in a place like this? Says the next hungry bird to come along!

Nice picture!
