Friend or Foe?

I found this really cute grasshopper in my garden the other day. 
I forgot if we gardeners supposed to be friends with these insects or not.
And din't see any of my plants with all the leaves gone, so I treated him as a friend. 

I gave him a ride, he showed me with his little hand where to take him.

Then we had a photo shoot.

And spent a long time talking about important grasshopper stuff, such as green leaves.

And at the end he waved goodbye.

Sharing with you and Saturday's Critters

  2. What a cute post! I enjoyed your grasshopper friend and photos.. Thanks so much for sharing your post with my critter party. Have a happy weekend!

  3. we have bazillions of them, here. they eat anything green in our hot, dry summers. great shots, though!

  4. Brilliant photos of your cute little grasshopper. So clear! Thanks for visiting me and have a great weekend.

  5. Awesome shots of this strange looking critter.

  6. I enjoyed your story of the friendly grasshopper, so cute! I have seen only a few, so I don't notice any damage from them either. When we first moved here they were everywhere!

  7. Oh, I've never seen grasshopper beautiful like this and clearly♡♡♡

  8. He's a pretty good sized fellow. Your shots were great and really showed a lot of detail. I love his waving good-bye.

  9. Great images, but while I used to love grasshoppers - especially during my childhood - nowadays they're a mortal enemy. We have literally thousands of them here. With every step, there they are. On your clothes, inside your boots, on the house, in your hair, on the fence posts, on your dogs... all the while stripping all your plants and grass. All that hard work for nothing. (And this is the first place I've experienced their destructive abilities, too. Now I can understand how menacing they can be to farmers).

    I really, really miss having gardens. Hopefully the grasshoppers won't always be like this. Fingers Crossed! (Sorry for rambling. Lol! But seriously... you took some great pics there).

  10. The pointing and waving were so cute! What a wonderful post!

  11. I love stories that give animals human experiences and thoughts. The pictures are also very beautiful!
