11:21 The only flying insects with four walking legs that you may eat are those which have knees extending above their feet, [using these longer legs] to hop on the ground.
Ach et-zeh tochlu mikol sherets ha'of haholech al-arba asher-lo chra'ayim mima'al leraglav lenater bahen al-ha'arets.



Commentary:

knees extending...
  Among grasshoppers, the knees of the hoppers protrude prominently above the rest of the foot.
