Foraging in the Rain

A strange wind came out of the west this weekend bringing a cool, refreshing rain that came down nearly all day Sunday.

I took the opportunity to hike in the fresh drizzle. Along the trail I saw something jumping. Looking down expecting to see a frog or toad,  I caught sight of this tiny creature foraging in the rain.

It could leap quite high off of the ground, although it found this bit of grass and felt protectively hidden and moved no more. I snapped the photo and left it to its rainy forage.
