Hi everybuddy. I wanna show you something.

Grasshopper eating plant

See this guy? The lady with the yellow hair says he’s a grasshopper. He’s making lunch outta one of the plants in her flower pots outside. You can see where he’s already eaten parts of it. He’s a loud eater because she could actually hear him chomping on that plant.

What a little bugger! I’d like to make lunch outta him…or at least play with him for a little while. Now wouldn’t that be fun!

  1. Zoey, we know you’d give that lil guy what-for! He’d never chomp on another innocent plant again.

  2. That sounds like fun, Zoey! He would make a purrfect appetizer. MOL!
    Hope you are having a great Friday. XOXO

  3. I would love to play with that grasshopper! Signed, Lucy

  4. OH my! Those things do make a lot of noise but BEWARE – they also SPIT when they feel they are in danger. It’s a brownish icky stuff that is harmless but – well – GROSS! Maybe you should just WATCH them instead of playing with them????

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. Leave him be. One day he will grow up to be a Kung Fu master. 🙂

  6. What a pretty grasshopper! That must’ve been some loud chomping.

  7. Ha ha Kung Fu Master! Mama love those espiso es. There is a space in that wor an also in the wor after because mama has LOST her letter that rhymes with ‘see’ an comes after C. WHERE IS IT? That grasshopper ha better stick to grass!

  8. Hey, that hopper! What a toy he’d make! Our Mom says we have itty bitty hoppers, so small they would barely be a blip on our toy radar.

  9. We get lots of grasshoppers when the weather is good. Eric used to love catching and chomping on them.

  10. Go git him Zoey!

  11. Oh he looks nice and fat from eating the plants! You should invite him in the house. It’s gonna be fun to “play” with him 🙂

  12. Zoey, the thought of you crunching on that bug…gross!

  18. Zoey, these little guys are a delicacy! Some peeps put choclate on them. Not us though, we like them straight from the backyard. No more noise from them thar buggers.


  19. That grasshopper would make one fun toy. But it might not be very tasty. Good picture Mom. You all have a great day.

  20. Looks a bit different than the grasshoppers around here. Those things can kind of fly you know. Best to get him away from the flower pots.

  21. That sure would be fun!

  22. Zoey, we would love to see you being friends with a grasshopper or they could become a new play toy for you. Must have been really loud for your mom to hear it chewing. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful weekend

  23. He is a little scary.

  24. How could your Mom say no to that sweet face, Zoey?!

  25. I’d luv to play wif him too.

  26. Zoey, great picture of you! I would love to play with that crunchy grasshopper!

  27. Mmmm–crunchy on the outside, gooey in the middle!

  28. Zoey, that grasshopper sure has a lot of nerve! TLwtYH should bring it in the house for you to give it what for 🙂 when pip was still allowed outside she ate one once…but then yakked it up (yes, on the carpets). Never again. Only if we have a chance, we’ll get one to play with, pull off the legs, and then leave it under the furniture for our mom to find 😀

    pip, minnie, hollie, sharpie, ditto, TL

  29. That grasshopper has a mighty big appetite for such a little guy. he would be fun ti play with. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  30. We love to play with grasshoppers ! It’s a kind of Ikea bug, except that you can only disassembly it. Purrs

  31. Wow he is AMAZING. We don’t get yellow ones here, we get little green ones!

  32. Oooooohhh, I would play with that thing and play and play and play, then get bored and walk away. Nice crisp photo, by the way.

  33. I bet that little bugger tastes just like chicken! MOL!

  34. Well he may be kinda cute but talk about rude.
    He shouldn’t be munching on your moms plants!
    Have a wonderful weekend…

  35. I don’t know Zoey – those guys can just pretty far

  36. Oh, Mom should let you out there to take care of that!! One of our dogs used to love to chase grasshoppers. 🙂

  37. The bugs sometimes take over. Be glad you don’t have Japanese beetles!

  38. Wow, that little guy must chew with his mouth open if the lady with the yellow hair could hear him!

  39. Your bug pal looks very interesting pretty Zoey! We still don’t have internet and are working on cellular which sure isn’t easy.

  40. We’re with you gawjus. Altho’ we don’t think he’d be much of a lunch. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

  41. […] He’s got a leaf in his mouth. Now, not only do we have grasshoppers making lunch outta the plants…we’ve got rude bunnies doing it, too. Pretty soon there’s gonna be no plants and flowers […]
