Bug of the Week: Sunflower Grasshopper

As I pointed out in one of my other blogs, I recently went to a u-pick farm. But instead of vegetables, I brought home photographs.

The sunflowers were glorious.

But of course, I spotted the grasshopper.

Wait, why does it have its left antenna down? In the previous photograph the antennae were up.

Oh. It's walking forward. Where is it going?

Perhaps it's going to continue snacking on the sunflower petals, because that seems to be where its left antenna is aimed.

Who knew grasshoppers used their antennae for GPS?
