Such a lucky grasshopper that the human he met wasn't a kid with a jar with holes in the top.

When I was a kid, I used to catch grasshoppers, tie a thread around one leg and then tie the other end to a stable object. I'd watch them jump around in their confined area for awhile then let them go free!

I think that green one is a katydid! We have similar ones here, hard to find but their sound is really loud :-)

Have a great day!

The hens have decimated my grasshoppers. I am making a special hen proof area for them. Very food of grasshoppers, childhood memories I think.

Thanks Lois, Sherry, Elaine (Country Girl),AC, Christer, Sandra and John.
Christer, I don't think that the first green fellow (or gal?) is a katydid. I did an online look-up and a katydid has broader wings that it can use to camouflage itself like a leaf.
If anyone else knows insects and this is not a young grasshopper, do let me know.

I think I'm finally caught up reading back blogs! Just subscrbed.... don't know how I missed that I hadn't done that yet!
I've never understood people who are afraid of grasshoppers. I've got fond memories of catching them when I was a kid.

Very nice shots of the Hopper.

Thanks Grace and Mona. I was never quick enough to catch grasshoppers as a kid - lightning bugs were much easier targets.
