I couldn't see it at first in pic 1. Had to refer to 2 and 3.

Have a look at this Bark-mimicing grasshopper and see what you think. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/411...

Wow, that's awesome camouflage! Nice spotting, Rachael.

Remarkable coloring! How do they all do that so well. Even expert artists have trouble duplicating colors.
