He certainly is very different! V1 gets the click though I do love that wonderful, almost mosaic pattern you captured on his back in V2.

Definitely your usual hopper !! Thanx to you we can see all the tiny detail we would have missed !! These are excellent images Carol !! After looking again I think this is a crossbreed between a hopper and a cricket GrinGrinGrin

The facial expression creates sympathy for this hopper with broken left antenna (V1). Wing pattern is well exposed in V2. - Raja.
