A Georgia thumper..

 

This is what greeted me today, as I pulled up to work.  It's a rather large grasshopper, also known as a Georgia thumper.  He's pretty small compared to some of the other ones i've seen.

A am deathly afraid of bugs, and usually run screaming if one comes near me.  It's something I have had to get used to living in the south.  We have ants that bite, massive roaches that fly, and grasshoppers that scare the hell out of you.

Oh, and lets not forget the poisons snakes, and alligators that are in nearly every body of water.

Someone care to remind me why I moved here?
