grasshopper

Description:

supremely camouflaged (although not for a green leaf background) small grasshopper, about 1"

Habitat:

amazon

Notes:

I like to call this the 'desert storm' grasshopper for its camouflage. This spotting is part of a group of about 25 spottings that were all spotted in the same place on the same morning of December 9, 2012 from 9am to 11am in the morning. I went out with a friend and 2 guides. We stayed close to the lodge because they sky was very dark and we could hear thunder in the distance. We walked through some secondary forest and through a huge patch of Cassava, where I spotted most of these insects. It was an amazing morning! It rained just as we got back to the lodge. It was our last hike at the lodge and one of the most spotting filled. I have some other spottings with this date but those dates were just an estimate and not exact. This group of spottings were the only ones I photographed on Dec 9.
