I think this is a baby grasshopper, He is about 1/2 inch without all his appendages.

A Huge thank you is due to Zoran, Kate and Matthew for their wonderful User awards for {oo O ooo}!

Thank you for your interest in the walking onion--an edible and interesting allium. It grows tiny bulblets at the top of a stalk. When they mature they cause the stalk to bend and the small onions plant themselves---thus spreading itself (walking) thru your garden or where ever. Best grown in a compost pile!

This is just too cute, such excellent colour, just love him. How do you know he is a baby? Although he definitely looks like one. He's like a little jewel......Sandy

If you have a number of them I hope they are not hungry little critters that like to eat every leaf in sight.

Una captura maravillosa. Esta a punta de saltar..
Great closeup, Jenn. It does look like a grasshopper.

And if anyone wants any walking onions.....I have some to give a way. Jenn knows how they spread.
