Yikes! A grasshopper!

from Don Norris

YIKES! A GRASSHOPPER! The irony of this photo doesn't lend itself to the obvious: it is the relative age of the two objects -- the four-month-old bug, and a chunk of rock that appears to this amateur geologist to be from an age roughly six hundred million years ago. The bug's life will probably end with the onslaught of winter, but that rock could go on far beyond, what, the age of humanity? Fragile as it is, life seems to be simply passing through. At Mount Hood in Melrose.
