Flicked this guy away! If it's a grasshopper it'll just eat the foliage. If it's a cricket it will eat praying mantids! Pretty sure it's a grasshopper. I never can get their identification straight!

Appears to be an immature katydid to me with those long antenna. Nice work. ;-)

I like the composition. The leaves are quite beautiful. I loke the way the grasshopper is facing away from us. He looks ready to jump at any moment.

What a clear shot this is.

A nice crisp shot.

Nice shot, I'm not sure of the difference either, but I think that's a grasshoper.
