Attacked by a grasshopper!

We just got home from dinner. I stepped out of the car, turned back and noticed a large grasshopper sitting on the roof of the car!
We observed it for a short while, then I dashed off and got my Ixus camera.
Here’s my best shot of it …
Grasshopper - 7
However, after several more minutes of close observation it started to stare back at me. Suddenly, it jumped at my camera! I was taken by surprise and dropped the Ixus! Fortunately it’s still working fine.
Grr … what an aggressive insect!
