[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The coloring of different species of grasshopper are often dependent on environment. Many species are adapted to green fields and forests, and blend in well there to avoid predators. Others have adapted to drier, sandy environments and blend in well with the colors of dry dirt and sand.

Hi Kapil,

Its a beautiful shot. Its very difficult to see some of the grasshopper species and other camouflaged insects in their natural environment. I recently sighted a preying mantis in one such habitat.

Thank you for sharing.
