flying twig

Drake - Mom! Mom come here! Hurry!!!
M - What?
D - Look Mom... a flying twig!
M - A what??
D - Right there... a flying twig!!
M - (chuckle) Drake, that is a grasshopper.
D - No, look. It looks like a twig and then it flies.
M - Yes, it does look like a twig. That is how it camoflages itself from predators. But it IS a grasshopper.
D - (saddened by the news) Oh.... I was hoping it was a twig.

Yet another reason why I love my boys!

I too think a flying twig is more interesting than a grasshopper.
