  1. I’ve had a few baby ones in my yard as well. They are just awesome. Very nice because they eat the bugs. Have a great weekend.

  2. you know, i’ve never seen one in real life. and i didn’t know they were good omens… in any case, this guy is a grand specimen, as is your haiku 🙂

  3. A holy rosemary bush portends some future great event!! ….a major change in weather? Earthy and rustic feel!!

  5. beautiful haiku dawn and great capture on this amazing insect that will look you straight in the eye, even cock its head while you are speaking with it. they are so sensitive and responsive.
    thank you for this soft green prayer.

  6. Seems like you’ve got a lot of ‘Holy Stuff’ going on there in your own backyard!

    Have a lovely weekend.

  7. What a big ‘grasshopper’ you spotted! I’ve never seen one in the Netherlands – I guess it’s too cold and wet in our part of the world… gorgeous photo and beautiful haiku!
