Green grasshopper covered with a brown dust which I think is fungal spore. I have cropped the photos so that the brown marks can be better seen.
The grasshopper seemed listless; almost dead. Usually I see (in photos) white fungal filaments cover the hapless insect; even emerge from inside...this one was dusted with spores...early infection, maybe?
