My current internetweb connection is pretty spotty so this’ll be short and sweet like the last few. Here’s some in-your-face photos of the abundant walking sticks, katydids and monster grasshoppers that fly into my face on a daily basis. I don’t think I’ll ever look at walking sticks the same after taking this photo. The katydids (last photo) are kind of cute at first but not quite as cute when they sing. All day. All night. In your head, in your ears. I’m pretty sure they are trying to take over the world, or at least the Texas Hill Country. Really – they’re so bad you can’t even hear the birds sometimes over them. It’s impressive really. I’m sure the grasshopper (middle) could probably consume your face in 3-4 bites if he wanted to, he’s gargantuan. He’s a monster. I actually love all these insects, fyi. But it would be cool if the katydids shut it once in a while.
