GOT the time?
That might have been the question from this immature grasshopper
Who was relocated to a nearby tree.
An adult grasshopper checked out a holiday flag . . .From ALL sides . . .
Then, deciding some greenery was a better camouflage
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!
Cool photos !yup I think we all have caught grasshoppers as kids !
That guy kinda keeps you hopping, eh?
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!Christer.
nice shots, they are visiting now, have seen several blogs with different types but still grasshoppers, must be the season
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.
