Amazing capture. I found a picture here, Jenn, that looks just like yours, and says, "Young grasshoppers are called nymphs. Since their wings aren't developed, they can't fly and only hop. This one has long antennae and therefore is considered a long horned grasshopper". You have to scroll a long way down to find it!
