Good vs. Evil

In your mind rate the following creatures as good or bad. Don't think about it, just go with your first emotion.

Brown grasshopper

Yellow grasshopper

Yellow Garden Spider

I don't know about you, but I would guess it might be common to rate grasshoppers as good, maybe even cute. Spiders might be thought of as bad or maybe scary. Guess what? The good, cute grasshoppers are totally decimating my landscape - eating holes in leaves, and damaging garden and yard plants. The evil, scary spiders are catching grasshoppers in their webs, which for me is a good thing. There just might be a lesson to be learned here...


  1. Oh! Oh! Oh!

    The lesson is that we should feed grasshoppers to spiders, right?

    Probably not, huh? Probably, you have something deeper in mind.

    Those are bugs, not dogs. They are all bad. I want to see the dogs!
