Not sure if you can appreciate this grasshopper's enormous size from this quick photo as I was leaving to go somewhere in a hurry and he flew off pretty quick. He was gigantic! I couldn't believe how fortunate I was to have seen him on the first day of spring, must be good luck or something like it.

Was it big enough to make a meal of?

He's so beautiful! I would probably freak if I saw him in person but in a photo he looks marvelous! hehe

I can't remember ever seeing one that big, it was really crazy to see it just sitting on my car.
