This little guy was on there dry weeds of a drought -worn area . He looked new to me so I had to post him . Thanks for any comments , sincerely Beth I had to place my hand under the dry plant that it was on so I could ensure that I caught it and got a photo and that is why it is on my hand as it had the " scared ... fall reflex . " Thanks for any comments , sincerely Beth
