I ran into some visitors the other day …
Who were amazed by the size of these grasshoppers.
|Baby lubbers fit on your nail,|
Adults are more palm-size
What startled them more was when I told them they were babies.
An adult lubber grasshopper is a good 3-4 inches long.
As scary as they look they are fun to hold.
I usually walk them to the side of the road.
