Hopping leaf to leaf
It’s not a bad way to live
For a grasshopper.

    He looks like someone sprinkled pepper all over him.

  7. Ayeesha says:

    All adorable
    And green. Hop hop! Yay for spring.
    Then cat bites head off.

    Too morbid? Sad to say, my childhood cats thought it was the best thing ever to pounce on them and indeed bite their little heads off. Such is life!!

    Striped legs and antennae too
