How much can Hector eat?

I took a break from sculpting fairies this morning, and went to the garden to enjoy a cup of coffee and some toast. I love the cool quietness in the morning before the heat sets in. I found this little fellow doing much the same as I, only he was munching on a strawberry leaf. He's as cute as can be...I know he will grow into a plant destroying huge grasshopper, but I decided to live and let live. I kind of hope he sticks around so I can watch him a little longer. I've named him Hector. Between Hector and Pink, my strawberries may be in trouble.

To name a bug.. Sounds like something I would do.. hee... Oh I love Hector.. It has been a long while since I have seen a baby grasshopper.
Looks like we had the same this morning. Coffee and toast...
I hope your strawberries make it..

It's good to know you appreciate a handsome little grasshopper Paulette! :) He was still hanging around this morning. I'm taking pictures almost daily when I can spot him. I'm thinking there might be a grasshopper faerie in my future!
