What is that thing? It is much bigger than many Vermont birds....
It is a grasshopper, though I dont know what the scientific name is, I will have to reasearch it.:-)Carle'
Crikey! That's huge!He looks absolutely fascinated by it :0)
Wow my friend! Jenna has just seen this and she can't believe he is so big!
Oh WOW!! That is just too cool!
What a shock I had when opening up your blog! That is enormous!! And... and he's so close to it...
I am pretty sure it is a Pyrgomorphidae grasshopper. I have not got my insect book up here, but see this page:http://www.biodiversityexplorer.org/insects/orthoptera/pyrgomorphidae/Was it similar? They are fantastic and a bt scary!
My daughter LOVES insects and would go bonkers having this one as a pet. It's huge! And it's colors look beautiful!
