Good shot , they can be pests.

LOL!! Yep - I agree Beekay, and I killed another one this morning :)))

Beekay

They are nasty Robyn!

My pleasure Katbalou - I'm pleased you liked this puzzle!!

Ah Mags - was that you I heard screaming :))))) I react that way to the really big ones - I can't stand their spikey legs!!! Thanks:)))

Thanks Barb - they sure are a nuisance, but I guess we have to put up with them! At least they're not in plague proportions here - not like the swarms that destroy crops!!

Thanks dondi - I'll tell Jeremy:))

Unfortunately Patti!!!! Thanks!

Thanks Floyd - as long as you visit I don't mind how long you take to solve the puzzle!! I hope you're enjoying your new computer :))

LOL!! Same old dark green Dave :))) I actually took a couple of shots of it depositing it's 'tobacco' :)))

Thanks Nicky - glad you like it :)))

It didn't listen Suzy - so it ended up under my sandal :))))

Thanks Ami :)))

We have them too Nev - they are usually young grasshoppers or a similar bug with a pointy head!! If you Google them you'll see the difference!! Thanks!!

Thanks for the offer Shirley, but there always seems to be another 3 or 4 the next day!!! I can't for the life of me think of one good thing that they do - bit like leeches or fleas or ticks!!!! Thanks Shirley!

Great picture Jeremy, I'd stomp on him for you Rob, if I were there, nasty little critter, I wonder if they do any good at all?

When I stayed with friends in Iowa, USA, they often spoke of 'katydids' in their corn fields. As I had not heard that word before, I enquired, and was stunned to learn that it was actually a grasshopper. But they don't call them grasshoppers!

The photo is excellent, too bad the subject matter isn't a welcome one!!!

pumpkinhead

Oh no! Go away grasshopper!!!

How annoying. What a fantastic shot.

warbler

That stinks, but I can't help wonder what color its tobacco is. Excellent photo, Jeremy!

Thank you Rob/Jeremy.
I won't be on the leaderboard for quite awhile.

He has good taste! :)

dondi

Great shot robryan.......Thanks...

They sure are devils, Rob! With rain there would be more vegetation for them to eat but where is the rain???? Great picture though...thanks Jeremy!

Katbalou

Oh, I know they do a lot of damage but I still love the photo/puzzle. What a fascinating head (face and antennae). Thank you so much for the interesting puzzle!

robryan

He was the right colour Janet - but was only about 1" long!! He ended up in grasshopper 'heaven' too!!! They've chewed the tops off 3 or 4 flower buds and munched on the new soft leaves - cheeky devils!! Here's hoping you get rain soon!!! Thanks ♥

YUK! He's one of those big "plague" locust type of grasshoppers. I hate them. I noticed today that the little black ants are putting black scale onto my hibiscuses, that's a sign that the plants are stressed.

Good pic, Rob (son Jeremy!) thanks, hugs, Janet ♥
