The Grasshopper

Camera Critters
This week, while waiting for Handsome at school, Goddess squatted down and picked up what I thought would be a flower, a clover or some other priceless present. This time she came toward me with something moving.

She was amazed that it sat on her hand staring at her. I was amazed and worried that it didn't hop off onto her face or something. I took pictures with my teeth clenched, worried at any moment she would scream when it hopped. It never did. She held it for about 2 minutes while they stared at each other. Then the grasshopper turned around and hopped off her hand.

The last picture was her face after it hopped off! Priceless.

For the bigger photos, head over to my photo stream at Flickr.
