Isn't he cute? I found this guy when I was mowing my 9 ft. tall grass yesterday. He was nestled into some grass near where the air conditioner drips outside (I'm sure there's a technical name for that, but you know what I'm talking about).
I was impressed that he didn't even try to pee on me. Usually they do. It's their way of saying,
My back yard is also host to about a million grasshoppers. They were flying all around me while I was mowing and they looked like little white butterflies until they landed.
Unfortunately, my backyard is also a haven for the biggest spiders known to man. I hate them, I hate them, I hate them. To add insult to injury, lots of them were carrying around egg sacs while I was mowing. It was disgusting.
It took forever to mow the back yard, and when I was almost done, I think the mower got too hot and just refused to work anymore. As a result, I have an island of misfit weeds in the back yard now.
