Monomad: Mr. Bush Cricket

in Black And White3 months ago

There had been a little debate between us before I took the picture. I saw this insect crawling on a twig yesterday.

I greeted him, "Hey Mr. Grasshopper, can I take your picture?"

"Sorry, you are wrong! I'm not a grasshopper, but a bush cricket."

"No, I can't be mistaken. You are a grasshopper."

"Why do you have to insist when I am a bush cricket and not a grasshopper!"

"What's the difference? Both the grasshopper and you look the same."

"Grasshoppers are grasshoppers, while I am a bush cricket. You should be able to tell the difference! If you still think I'm a grasshopper, you don't have to take my picture!"

"Relax, if that's what you want. I'm sorry. Yes, you are a bush cricket." I gave in, and at that moment, I took his poses like a model.

This is just an imaginary debate between us. But I hope you enjoy that. The real intention was to submit some of these photos for the daily #monomad challenge.
