It's A Bird, It's A Plane....

I bet you're curious how I got this grasshopper photo? There was a bit of luck involved to the grasshopper like this. I was leaving for work on a very hot a steamy afternoon. I opened the car door and was hit in the face by a wall of sweltering heat from the car sitting in the sun all afternoon. It was very hot outside and even hotter inside my vehicle. I must get inside the car so I can leave, I turn on the engine and fire up the air conditioner. I'm sitting there for a few minutes in the drivers seat, when this grasshopper jumps onto the front window of my car. What luck eh?

Have you ever had strange luck like this for a photo?

Wow...that's quite the view of a grasshopper's underbelly! Cool perspective. Lucky photos rarely find me. Usually I'm pursuing my subjects (which probably causes them to run/fly away faster).
