Hopped up on Hoppers

This past Sunday Annika and I spent some time outside during the boys' naptime. We found a very large grasshopper, which we eventually captured in her bug box. We let it out after it started hopping violently. We didn't want it to get hurt. Here are some nice up close pictures of Mr/Ms Hopper, whose body was at least an inch long.


Found him on the garden cage...


Climbing on a stick...


Sticks are yummy...


A shot for perspective...


One more up close.

After his photoshoot, he hopped away.

that last photo is awesome, although I personally wouldn't have gotten quite so close to that little monster!
