Believe it or Not


Beans was out for a wander as I followed along.

I saw this.  She continued on.

This grasshopper had managed to impale himself on this thorn while in flight.

Talk about having a bad day.
It must have happened long ago for the hooper was now just a dried husk.

Could have been put there by a shrike: "They eat smaller prey (such as ground beetles) right away, but they are famous for impaling larger prey on thorns or barbed wire to be eaten later."

You’re probably right. It was just more fun thinking he did it to himself.

So sad, no matter how it happened :(
