Eric, we get to carry those little critters sometimes for a couple of miles when we are on graveled roads, but once we hit a higher speed it is amazing how long they can still hang on.
They are tenacious, alright. I can never figure out how their claws can hold onto the glass so tightly.
But I have to make sure everyone understands that I wasn't driving when I took this photo (really!). We stopped in the alley so Debbie could check the mailbox, and I grabbed the point-and-shoot that I always keep in the car for just such opportunities.
Am I the only one creeped out by this photo?! Giant killer grasshoppers floating in the sky...would make a good B-movie. But seriously, that's an amazing photo. You sure can't tell there's any glass between you and the subject. Has the Entomological Appreciation Society of America contacted you yet? ;-)
Gwynne...that would be an awesome movie. But it would definitely also need Robots.
I have a good picture of a walking stick I found sitting on my car a couple of days ago. Your grasshopper looks fiercer, though!
Okay. That is too cool.
