I passed this . . . . this . . . . this . . . . I don't know what it is . . . . on my bicycle the other day. I rolled past it in shock, both fascinated and, yes, terrified at the same time. An unfamiliar passion for scientific inquiry took hold of me and I turned my bike around and pulled up next to the . . . . the . . . . whatever it is. It moved quickly, amazingly so, heading toward a grasshopper or locust or some sort of hoppy-thing also crossing the road. Things could get ugly, uglier than I cared to witness, so I quickly got out my camera and took a quick photograph. Can someone please tell me . . . .
what the hell this is?
