I do not have an ID for this handsome couple in the act of love, but I'm impressed by their splendid camouflage. The female is about 30 mm long. The are probably of the Pamphaginae sub-family.

Hello Ishi,
A nice capture of this species of grasshopper about to pair. Though the male and female are differently coloured oth have a fine camouflage pattern suggesting a stony habitat.
Excellent POV and colours and though soft both grasshoppers are well shown.
Thanks and have a good week,
