Walking back to the office today, after picking up lunch, a squirrel hopped out of some shrubs and started running towards me. As we came closer together the squirrel hung a right turn back into the plants and startled a huge grasshopper that flew up and turned towards me! It swerved away before crashing into me and landed near the curb. As I walked past it I thought of taking a photo, but then the grasshopper took flight and skidded across the top of a xxx newspaper machine. With a gust of energy the grasshopper flew hard into the path of a van that was speeding by about 35 mph. Fade to black.
