A Grasshopper and Water Droplet

Have you seen a grasshopper drinking water droplet? I shot it doing that this morning at the Botanic Gardens. It uses one of the front leg to scoop the water droplet and bring it to its mouth. I could see the action very clearly through my macro lens when it was doing that.

See the 100% cropped version below. You can see the water droplet and one of its front legs holding it.

Shot with Canon 1D Mark IV and Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro handheld at ISO 800. I wish I had my tripod for better sharpness.
