The confused grasshopper scratching its head

Raising a foreleg to its head as it sits atop a flower, this grasshopper appears somewhat confused about what to do next.
Looking like a human scratching its head, the humorous pose was captured by amateur photographer Matt Cole, 40, in Lount Nature Reserve, Leicestershire.
Matt, from Ashby de la Zouch, said: 'It's always great to photograph an animal or insect doing something slightly unusual.

'I was on the lookout for interesting insects when I spotted it and followed for a few minutes as it jumped from one perch to another.
'Eventually it settled on this Devil's-bit Scabious flower and allowed me to set up my tripod in front of it.
'As I was watching through my camera viewfinder it briefly lifted its front leg.
'It was starting to spit with rain so it could have been brushing a water drop off its head or eye.
'Either that or it is scratching its head in bemusement, wondering what on earth I'm doing there.'
He added: 'You can put a lot of effort into fieldcraft, technique and composition but sometimes you need a bit of luck to give an image that something extra.'

Meet The Real Spice Girl:Rochelle loves curry so much she's eaten it for the past 29,500 meals - including breakfast

Breakfast? Lunch? Dinner? It's all good for Rochelle Peachey just as long as it is spicy.
The mother of one, 49, from Gants Hill, Essex, has just been crowned the country's curry queen - after eating the spicy food for her last 29,565 meals.
She is so addicted to curry she has to add hot spices to every meal - including breakfast.

Rochelle first developed the taste for eye-watering meals in her teens after eating her first ever curry in Brick Lane, London.
Since then she has been eating out at curry houses three times a week without fail

And she adds spice to virtually all her food - including salads and her eggs in the morning.
Rochelle is now so immune to the heat she can eat whole chillies - without having to take a sip of water.
Her talent even earned her a free meal from a curry-house owner who didn't believe she was capable of eating one.

She even carries a bottle of spicy sauce in her handbag to spice up her food when she's dining out.
Over the years she has spent thousands of pounds on curries and spicy ingredients.

And she has tasted thousands of dishes - but says her favourite will always be chilli chicken.

Her devotion has impressed curry brand Pataks so much they've named her Britain's biggest curry mad fan.

And, as part of National Curry Week, which runs from October 9 to 15, they've given her a year's supply of their pickles, pastes and sauces.

She said: 'I first had curry in my teenage years - I'd been taken to Brick Lane and I was hooked from then on.

'I must have done something to my taste buds because I can't eat a bland meal now - every dish I eat has to include a degree of heat.

'I add spice to most of my food now, including soups, salads, shepherd's pie and my eggs at breakfast.

'I go through a couple of bottles of spicy sauce a week - I sometimes put a bottle in my handbag if I'm going out so I can add it to food.'

She added: 'A lot of the curries I eat are far too spicy for most people, they can't believe I can eat them without even having a sip of water.

'One restaurant owner even challenged me to eat a whole chilli - he was so stunned when I did that I didn't have to pay for my meal.

'I eat three curries a week and if I've got left overs I'll eat it for breakfast the next day.'

Mrs Peachey runs transatlantic dating website 'I Love Your Accent' and divides her time between her homes in Essex and Orlando, America.

She says the Americans aren't as understanding of her taste in food as the Brits.

And she admits she's even had to pack hot sauces when she's travelled across the Atlantic in the past because she worried about not being able to find a curry house.

She added: 'Americans are not big on curry. A few years ago is wasn't really a big thing so I would sometimes have to bring curry sauces across in my luggage.

'Whenever I go to an Indian restaurant there, even the hot hot hot curry comes out mild enough to feed to a baby and it drives me crazy.

'I ask for extra chillies and spices every time. Waiters often look at me like I'm crazy, one even told me that the only people he knows who have their dishes that hot are Indian.'

Mrs Peachey admitted her bizarre taste in hot food has caused some arguments - particularly with her husband Phil, 46.

She said: 'It was difficult when my husband and I first got together, he couldn't understand my addiction to spicy food. It caused a lot of problems choosing restaurants.

'I eat curry or spicy food at every meal and I just couldn't cope when he wanted us to go to a French bistro or Italian pizzeria.

'There's just nothing on the menu at those type of places that really floats my boat.

'In the past it meant quite a few of my lovingly prepared spicy dinners were ending up in the bin, which caused rows because I hate wasted food.

'Sometimes, I didn't realise it, but he was sneaking off to pick up a takeaway burger and chips after secretly getting rid of whatever I'd cooked for him.

'I started sprinkling the tiniest bit of curry powder or pastes into his sandwiches because I wanted him to give it a chance.

'And it's really worked - he now likes hot food as much as I do and he's almost as in love with Indian food as me.

'His tolerance has definitely improved over the years.

'But he still can't quite handle it hot hot hot and shies away when I cook up super-spicy food - especially vindaloo.'
