Baby grasshopper

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Jack Hochfeld

We'd stopped for a coffee break. Everyone was tucking into the biscuits and the early morning coffee. My attention was captured by all the little, creatures surrounding us. Grasshoppers were, well hopping, and refused to stand still to have their photo taken. The little creatures are as much part of the veld as the big ones and are mostly overlooked.

Location: Exeter Lodge, Sabi Sands, Mpumalanga, South Africa
