Today I got up early and decided to take Duke on his daily walk. I have been going down the new road for a few days now and today I crossed the street to my neighbors yard and was startled when Duke walked up on the grass by the sidewalk and some thing huge jumped. O my god. I couldn't believe my eyes and Had to run home with Duke to get the camera. It was like something out of a movie, I have never encounter such a thing. It was a HUGE grasshopper, I have not done a google on it yet, but I took the pictures to work and my boss called it a Georgia grasshopper. O my goodness this thing is HUGE, I'm talking as large as an adult hand and so pretty with red wings and a yellow and black butt. I was scared of it so I stayed far away, but I was only scared of it taking a giant leap, and with the size of it's legs I wouldn't be surprised if it could jump twice my height. Anyways, let me just show you the pictures of this Southeastern Lubber Grasshoper
When I got home from work, Mianna told me that dad had killed a cotton mouth snake today. It was only a baby and I took pictures of the head and tail, but the thing is , Rich said it was very aggressive and the fact that it's a baby, scares the hell out of me, because that means the momma is some place close by.
