It’s not a “new” thing for me really, but lately it’s my FAVORITE thng to do…..chasing bugs! There are a lot of grasshoppers this year for one thing. Not sure why but it’s keeping me on my toes that’s for sure. They are EVERYWHERE. If I just sit still and stay alert, I’ll see one or two or three take off from where they last landed and fly to another spot – I’m there in a flash! All I really do is just go close to them and lie down then wait for them to hop again and I’ll make a mad dash to where they landed……I’ve also discovered dragonflies too……..they are way cool – they look like little biplanes (I know about those because my Daddy flies a plane). They are FAST though – sometimes I just like to watch them flying around because they don’t seem to land as often as the grasshoppers do.
I’ve talked on my blog before about how much I love moths – if I’m outside in the early morning before the sun comes up there’s always lots of those around our porch light or the light outside our basement door. They’re fun to chase – and if I catch one – I’ll eat it! Yep – who’d have thought they’d taste as yummy as they do but they DO…..won’t catch me eating any other bug though – moths are the only BUG SUSHI I eat!!
So I guess you could say I’m a real bug-fancier. On the very rare occasion I find a bug in the house (sometimes a cricket will hop in the basement door when we go outside) I’ll catch it for Mom and bring it to her – she takes care of it from there.
How about you guys? Do you like bugs like I do? One thing I will NOT mess with though is a spider….can’t trust ’em !
Happy Saturday to all my buddies – human and otherwise…..
