Orthopterous, also carnivorous,
And faintly whisper, Lord deliver us.

It’s one of my favorites also, and I can’t believe how long-waisted that dude is!

How come he’s missing his right arm? Did you shoot if off when you shot this picture? Huh, huh, didja, huh?

I remember the day we were gardening and he crawled onto my shoulder. I wouldn’t have known if you hadn’t pointed the little hitchhiker out.

Yes, I too love this photo.
