When I dropped my husband off at his office the other morning I saw that the building and parking lot were cover with grasshoppers. It is so dang hot and dry in Western Oklahoma that the grasshoppers are struggling. The next morning I snapped these photos, and there were only about half as many grasshoppers as the day before.
My daughter's junior high school insect collection must have traumatized me more than I thought! Every time I see insects it runs through my mind that I should put them in a jar. The insect collection assignment is in the late fall after the insects are pretty much long gone. Yes, my daughter and all her friends had nice insect collections that were turned in for a grade. I am still traumatized!
