[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I felt myself lucky by hosting Mr. Marsh on my helmet at rest at home yesterday night.
Length between 22 and 36mm. An absolutely stunning grasshopper with an olive green body and brownish forewings that have a yellow stripe along the lower edge. The hind femora are distinctly red below and the tibia are covered in a series of black and yellow bands. Females are noticeably larger than males. Ground colour can vary with olive brown forms common and purple colour forms of the female occasional.
