We have a visitor Last Saturday.

Grasshopper Visiting Us

Jelly cruelly pulled out its hind legs, and clipped its wings, and put it
Zaria holding a Grasshopperon Zaria’s hands.

While Zara made the “EEEW” sound and stayed far away; Zaria totally had no fear.

She let the grasshopper climb on her.

She checked out the grasshopper.

Patted it.

Even almost kissed it…..
but we stopped her.

While Zara kept her distant (but curious none the less), Zaria helped to bring the grasshopper close to Zara.

Occasionally, when the grasshopper caused some discomfort while moving on her arms, she peeled it off, and said, “Pain Pain.”

But when we took it away from her, she went and reached out for it again.

And started the whole process of examining it.

(Jelly coming from a farm, said that the hind legs are the ones that grasshoppers use to saw up leaves as well as propel themselves while jumping. They always remove it before ‘playing’ it with, so that it’ll not hurt whoever is handling it, nor escape from the captor by jumping away)
