Wordless Wednesday: Grasshoppers in the Basil

Grasshoppers Mating

Almost wordless: I was cutting some basil in the garden when I noticed this pair of grasshoppers doing something that looked suspiciously like mating — except they were sitting almost perfectly still.

    Maybe they were just resting after the main event. 🙂 Grasshopper spooning so to speak.

    Of course the pretty one is the MALE…LOL – Why else would she pose so still:)

      You’re probably right! I know nothing about grasshoppers other than birds enjoy eating them.

    Why is grasshopper mentioned often in Chinese or Buddhist literature?
    Nice photo.

    I am in awe of your photos! Seriously, every one is better than the next.
    As I type this I realize that this sounds like some of the spam comments I receive, but in your case they it happens to be true 🙂

      Awww, thanks. I just keep my camera nearby for crazy sights like this in the garden. LOL on the spam comments. You forgot to tell me to ‘keep up the good work’ in broken english!
