Good Job Mother Nature
While I was talking on the phone with my friend Jonathan the other day, I spotted a giant grasshopper in the yard. Knowing the insect was responsible for munching my plants, I went to hunt it down in the clematis climbing the garage. Even with a broom, I couldn't get the bug to come out of hiding. Then again, with those wings that resemble leaves, the grasshopper could have been staring me down and I never would have known it. The camouflage is amazing.
So today, I was happy to find the dead insect on our back porch - the apparent victim of a bird napping. And here I was thinking the robins and sparrows just eat my grass seed. Good job mother nature.
