What the World Needs Is...

...more grasshopper babies???  Apparently so.

I'm no entomologist, but I'd say this amorous couple has babies on the brain.
Although we often see grasshoppers around here during this season of the year, I haven't looked at one closely for a while - have you?  Now that I take the time to inspect them, I realize that they actually look like aliens from outer space.
Regardless of my repulsion, they obviously find each other sufficiently attractive; and even though I find them severely lacking in the cute and cuddly department, I do stand in awe of the Creator God who can think up and make such bizarre creatures.

Of course, in their {bug} eyes, I'm the one who's bizarre.

That's great! They do look rather alien-like, don't they? Kudos to Jeff on the picture taking--those are pretty good.

LOL! Given the activity they are engagend in, I read "Jeff's hot pepper patch" as "Jeff's *hot* pepper patch"!
