Smile, it's a Jerusalem cricket

A Jerusalem cricket looks over a dried grass stem as it climbs on a moss covered log on a forested hillside near Elkton. The large insects are native to the western United States and Mexico. While Jerusalem crickets are not venomous they can emit a foul smell and are capable of inflicting a painful bite if handled.
I guess this was a friendly one. No stink and no bites.
