On this auspicious occasion, I will tell you a little about my accidental encounter with a shy white caterpillar and an alert grasshopper. At that time I was on my way home from a shop to buy sugar, because suddenly while sitting with the children, I felt like drinking coffee. The atmosphere at that time was indeed cold because it had been raining heavily since this morning in our area. Well, when I wanted to make coffee and took the sugar in the jar, apparently the sugar was gone. I was forced to leave the house on foot to go to the nearest shop.
On the way home from the tavern on the side of the road there was a small bush growing luxuriantly. From afar, you can already see the bright green color of these bushes. Well, when I got near these bushes I could see a glimpse of white clinging to a piece of leaf. Then I came closer to take a closer look, then I could confirm that the white color was a caterpillar. This caterpillar looks very shy, he doesn't move a bit even though I try to touch him with a wooden stick. And not far from where I found the caterpillar, in the bushes next to it I could see a small grasshopper that seemed to be waiting for its prey. I was amazed to see this grasshopper, when I took a closer look, it was clear that its antennae were standing up straight, a sign that it was starting to be wary of danger or threats. I then took out my phone and captured this interesting moment to share with all of my friends here.
