Bug Encounter

After a session of Solar Observing, this bug was darting around on the ground. It was hard to see as it blended in so well with the surrounding rocks. It looks like a grey grasshopper without the big jumping legs. It actually seemed curious as it came right up to me and stared for a few minutes, then took off in another direction.

It is very interesting to look at bugs through high magnification zooming in digital pictures. There is so much detail that is missed by the naked eye.
