Baby lubbers abound

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
in scale


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.
