Remind me to NEVER go three weeks without mowing my grass. I usually do it diligently once and sometimes twice a week, but we've been busy, on vacations, and it slipped away from me for a while. Now look what went and invaded my property not 10 minutes ago... Warning, those with bug phobias, might want to turn away now... This is my gate coming off the alley. See it? HUGE grasshopper. As a point of reference, that bolt over to the right? The part that hangs straight down is about four inches long. Note that it's roughly equivalent to the body of this thing, not counting its legs. EEK. Zoomed in. I dared not get closer, it looked ready to pounce and I am not prepared to become grasshopper food this evening.
