And a close-up of this big hopper:
As I said above, one shows up every so often. Actually, they don't show up every year, so I am glad to be able to take pictures of them when they do. I am sure that a swarm of them could wipe a grain field clean as a paved parking lot. One or two of them at a time are nice to see. . . a large swarm, not so nice and hope I never see a large swarm.

You all have a great evening and a wonderful tomorrow, you hear?
