What do you suppose this guy had been up to? And absolutely no shame. What nice chewing patterns you have. Maybe you are too full to move.
Today as I was pruning the lantana in this container I noticed this "BIG GREEN BUG"on this Amaryllis leaf. It kind of startled me when I realized I had been all around and practically on top of it before I even saw it - I guess because it sat there still and staring at me... AND afterall its disguise of a lovely shade of the same green creates an effective camouflage.
Have a look at those eyes- and stubby wings- and legs of different lengths- and bulbous body!
Last year the giant yellowish- greenish spotty grasshoppers ate nearly every Amaryllis plant in the garden. I don't remember seeing the beginnings of them until late March and they didn't look like this. This is a very different type from last year. I've never actually seen this kind of grasshopper.
Anyone have any idea about this guy? Although I have to admit this particular guy didn't live to tell about his good meal... nor to eat any more of my Amaryllis. I'm sure he has cousins close by which I will now be on the lookout for with a new awareness.
