Somehow I don't think he's a friend. : (
Good photo though.

I LIKE grasshoppers! He's only a baby, Blodyn! What harm would he do?

SORRY !! I didn't read the description of the photo. I thought it was a greenfly. That's what happens when there are so many to see and I seem to rush through them sometimes. I think if I took more time, which I would like to do in order to see them all properly, I'd never move from my computer. There are so many good photos.
I like grasshoppers aswell. In my old garden there were lots of them but I haven't seen any here. I'll have to get my little "wild patch" going so they can be attracted here. ( and I hope Blodyn will leave them alone, not crunch them like sweets the same as my old cat Fluffy would do ! )

Henry is just as bad - he tries to catch flies, which he does then eat, has eaten bees/spiders/craneflies/grasshoppers too! When he chases bees I yell 'Leave it' and he does - I'm so frightened he'll get stung in his mouth or worse, his throat.

Yes, it's a problem. You can't explain it to them. Blodyn chases all sorts of insects and I'm afraid of her being stung like you with Henry. Blodyn will sit and watch a spider for ages. It's as if nothing else in the world exists for her except that spider. Then she will eat it.
