garden 2011 004  So a few weeks ago I was dragging a hose across the vast expanse of our front lawn when cruising ahead of me I spotted this large, (3 1/4″ long, trust me, I’m spatial) pale green thing.  It was gliding right along the top of the grass!  I ran in and found the camera and a jar and took this photo of him on our front bench.  Isn’t it beautiful???  Thanks to “the Google”, it didn’t long to identify it and though I am glad to have found him I should let you know you don’t want this one or any of his buddies in your garden.  Apparently, they can do some damage.  Anyhow, I had to share.  Perhaps I was an entomologist in a former life…
