FIRST CRITTER OF THE SEASON

 

I was out in our backyard yesterday.

There was a huge grasshopper on the wall.

The thing measured about 3 inches.

We don't usually have these critters this big.

It was so nice of him to pause and pose for me before leaving his post.

I guess Summer is definitely on its way.



He was way up on the wall so I didn't get the greatest photo of him.

There was sort of a red stripe down his back.

I sure hope he isn't going to eat all of our plants.
