For those of you who didnít know, these little clangers, when approached, drop to the ground as though dead, and disappear from sight in the long grass. This chap was no exception, as soon as I advanced, down he would go. I left the area where I spotted him and returned a few minutes later, not once, but four times, and each time I returned I noticed he had crawled back up a stem to sit in the sun, but still insisted on dropping as soon as he saw me. I persisted, and on the 5th attempt, he agreed to let me pick the grass that he was perched on, and let me take a few images. As a bonus, he perched on my hand for a short while before flying into the distance.
