Small Things

Just a few snaps from the garden this week. First up is the biggest grasshopper I’ve ever seen. An absolute whopper. Appropriately called the Giant Grasshopper. It was sitting quietly on our front veranda and obligingly let me take it’s photo.

The second photo is of a praying mantis that also was very cooperative with my photo taking.


“Let us prey.” Blackbarred Mantis (Mantis octospilota).


The last shot is of a white cedar moth that came from our next door neighbour’s white cedar tree.
