Another cool find by one of my 3rd grade students. She held the flower still for me.
Great picture and colors!
Thanks for all your comments. I can't wait to present the little girl with the pic of her find.
Gordon...thanks for your efforts...you're a great and helpful ranger.
That is beautiful Claire, I had not seen it, I would have remembered.
Yeah, I noticed the white stripe and found that to be a bit of a conflict. The second photo on that page doesn't show the stripe, but the camera angle could be wrong. This appears to be a nymph stage, where it could or might not have a stripe. I looked at all the "green grass" type grasshoppers I could find from your area and this was the best match I found. Regardless, those are great photos; well done.
Superb ! What a combo ! The grasshopper and the flower are awesome :))
such a beautiful photo, ceherzog...your students are awesome!! :)
Gordon,It really looks like that but it lacks the white stripe on the abdomen. If no one else has any ideas I will go with that name.Thanks so much!
Nice shot. Possibly Hesperotettix floridensis. See http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/public/ap... and see if you agree.
wow..so beautiful..the color of flower and grasshopper is contrast obviously..
Wow I add a similar pic...
looks like a grasshopper nymph
