Camouflage

Walking through the desert in Joshua Tree you'll see strange flickers of motion out of the corner of your eye, somewhere ahead of you.

Something moved, but there's nothing there.

It's not a mirage, it's not a ghost.

The flickering was wings, and the grasshopper that saw you long before you saw it is hidden again, blending in with the gravel of the desert wash.

It's amazing how well they blend in, even at close range.
