I low crawled on my belly for a good 10 minutes to get a close up of this Carolina Locust on September 26, 2014. He is a master of camouflage, and also very skittish, I could get no closer than 10 yards walking upright before he would fly off.

After two unsuccessful attempts to crawl up on him, I finally snapped two decent photos before a curious passerby walked over to see what I was doing and scared him away.
