Wordless Wednesday: Patience Grasshopper!

Don't forget to check out my book giveaway this week: North! Or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson; Young Adult Fantasy Fiction. Click here.


My son & I found this big grasshopper on our back deck the other day. He wanted to try to catch it, but I wanted to take photos first. The grasshopper ended up jumping off the deck and running for his little life. But not before I caught these!

Great pictures. I can't stand grasshoppers. They make too much noise. I think we have one in the garage. The dogs are always trying to chase them and eat them. Yuck! Happy WW and take care.

Great picture but I don't think I would've put my foot near it. LOL Happy WW!

I'm usually terrified of insects, but grasshoppers thankfully don't bother me as much. There's something kind of... cute about them, especially when they're hop-hopping through the grass. =)

Great pictures. We are bugging hunting for school at the moment. My daughter's class wants them to bring in bugs to share. My daughter hates touching them and so do I so.... we have not got anything yet. I did come across a DVD all about bugs and seeing if she will let us use that instead:))

Cool picture! I am always afraid to take pictures of bugs because I think they are going to jump right at me. Good thing for zoom buttons on cameras :-)

Great picture. God I'm afraid of those things... some of those bugs just scare the crap out of me.
