Return of the Locust

Just over a year ago I wrote about a giant one-legged grasshopper who was eating the  yellow hibiscus flowers in my garden.

Amazingly he’s back! I think it’s the same grasshopper – he’s also missing a left leg and is a similar size, about 3 inches long. And he has the same pattern of dots around his neck.

Hang on dear.

This year he has brought a mate with him. Hope they’re not planning a large family.

They had just finished taking a big bite out of a leaf on my pitcher plant. I thought pitcher plants were supposed to eat insects, not the other way around.

Pitcher plant.
