I have seen lots of bugs in my lifetime but this big ole grass hopper or cicada is new to me. It is the biggest ole hopper I have ever seen:
Don't believe that it is a big one? OK, I put a tape measure beside it, so see for yourselves:
He (or she) is actually quite beautiful. Look closely and you will see many different colors. It also has a streamlined shape.
I went inside the porch and took a picture of its underside. If you are not too embarrassed to look, the picture is below:
Dang he or she is wearing yellow and black underwear !! I am glad it came for a visit this morning. He brightened up my day and I hope he does the same for you. Now have a great day today, you hear?
