[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One thing that fascinates me about grasshoppers is their amazing variation of color. This one is rather drab.

Interesting fact:

Grasshoppers as food...

In many places around the world, grasshoppers are eaten as a good source of protein. In Mexico for example chapulines are used as a snack or filling. It is found on skewers in Chinese food markets, like the Donghuamen Night Market.

Raw grasshoppers should be eaten with caution, as they can contain tapeworms.
