Differential Grasshopper

Melanoplus differentialis


Fairly large grasshopper. This one is mostly pale green and yellow but the species can vary from tan to green to yellow. No markings on the body but a distinctive herringbone pattern on the hind femora.


Suburban. Attempting to blend in with the remnants of a small veggie garden.
