Sunflowers on the Canadian Prairie and one vibrant green Grasshopper

I finally got around to planning a trip to photograph some Sunflower crops under good conditions.  The last year or so it seems I would stumble across a field of these normally colorful plants in exactly the wrong time.  Either they were hanging straight down well past maturity with seemingly all the life sucked out of them, or it was too early in the life cycle for anything interesting.  I was fortunate enough to discover this vibrant Grasshopper on the flower head.  I’m sure the farmer wouldn’t be quite as impressed.
