I think I was lucky to capture this moment ..... My camera was pointing at the mating dragonflies but when I was trying to focus, this one appeared inside the frame.

martini, no wonder it was so dormant when I approached it. It's about 10am, hidden amongst the tall grass.

This is a shorthorn (short antennae) grasshopper. Some of these are called plague locusts when they overpopulate. This is a superb shot Chiquita as you capture the wings expanding as it undergoes its final molt into adulthood. Katydids are nocturnal, as indicated by their long antennae and they live in trees and shrubs.
