Amazing!… a grasshopper emerges

What an interesting process, watching a grasshopper shed its old exoskeleton. The entire process took hours, and when I came out to look this morning it was still sitting on the adjacent leaf, possibly recovering from exhaustion. The grasshopper’s wings were completely straightened this morning, where as yesterday, late afternoon, they were still furled. This served to show me how vulnerable small creatures are, and how we should take notice of these wonders in our own backyards. Taz and I photographed the happening from time to time, so I’m sharing the images with you. Nature is amazing!

Let me know what you think.
