I had a grasshopper in my car the other day. It sat on my dashboard the whole way home. I’m glad it was only a short journey as it was very distracting! I was worried that it would jump towards me and make me jump myself! As it happened, the little guy seemed quite happy to sit looking forwards out of the windscreen until we got home, and then he turned to look at me as if to ask what he should do next! I managed to scoop him up onto a piece of paper and put him safely outside before I left the car. It was interesting being able to see the small creature at such close quarters though – usually they’re heard and not seen!
