[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot is from my 2004 year archive...

Grasshoppers are insects of the suborder Caelifera in the order Orthoptera. To distinguish them from bush crickets or katydids, they are sometimes referred to as short-horned grasshoppers. Species that change colour and behaviour at high population densities are called locusts.
Recent estimates (Kevan 1982; GŁnther, 1980, 1992; Otte 1994-1995; subsequent literature) indicate some 2,400 valid Caeliferan genera and about 11,000 valid species described to date. Many undescribed species exist, especially in tropical wet forests. The Caelifera are predominantly tropical.

Great colors . Excellent details. It's like a PIXAR's "Bug's Life" story.
