Bugs in the Desert!!

As a Preschool Teacher and the Mother of two boys, I am always fascinated by bugs!! I loved seeing a Praying Mantis outside of our room earlier tonight.
This afternoon we saw the hugest grasshoper that I have ever seen. The photo does not do it justice, but it was at least 4 inches long!!
We saw this beautiful moth laying on the ground outside of our room. It is also HUGE. My best guess is 4 inches from wingtip to wingtip. I wish my nephew Eldon was here to see these bugs...he would think they were so cool!!!
BTW-Jill I haven't seen any bugs from you lately...are the bugs gone from NC?

Fascinated by bugs? I don't think so!!! They're yucky - I have ants in my house and I want them gone!!!
