Red cardinal and Green grasshopper

The weather was very mild yesterday with a cool breeze blowing and the sun showing up occasionally from behind the clouds. Yes, it is September and Fall is here. Looks like the red cardinals love this weather. I spotted atleast four of them today nicely camouflaged among the red leaves and berries of Sumac.

Suddenly one cardinal leaped out of the bushes to catch a green grasshopper right in front of me. The grasshopper tried to escape several times only to be caught again by the cardinal. After a few attempts, the cardinal flew away with the grasshopper firmly held between its thick red beak.
