This tiny grasshopper nymph was hiding on the moss in our timber. If he hadn't of moved I would have never seen it. It was so little, barely 3/8 of an inch. It had very cryptic colors, looked very much like moss or lichen. I managed to snap a few photos of him before he hopped away to be hidden from my sight. I never did find him again. Great camoflauge.


  1. That is a tiny guy! I don't think I would have seen him!

  2. I almost didn't. I was looking for insects inside a rotting log in our timber. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a movement. I watched for awhile and it moved again. Then I spotted it on the moss. It was super tiny. Very pretty colors too. I was laying on the forest floor taking this picture. Probably how I ended up with poison ivy UGH!
