Grass hopper

A Grasshopper is a leaping insect closely related to roaches and crickets.
Many grasshoppers lay their eggs in the fall. By the next spring, the eggs are ready to hatch. When a baby grasshopper hatches, it wiggles slowly out of its egg. Then it pushes through the egg pod and makes its way up out of the hole.

A baby grasshopper is called a nymph (NIHMF). Nymphs may be tiny, but they have huge appetites. In fact, nymphs eat even more than adult grasshoppers do.

I like Grass hoppers,but I always seem to Hop up in the air when the Hopper does,you know that its going to jump but still....

How fascinating. I remember as a child spending hours in the fields catching grasshoppers. Such happy days. x
