Thank your all for your wonderful comments and vote following yesterdays upload, a further mention going to Bxox(Zoran), Chrissie3(Chrissie) and Richowil(Bill) for presenting me with their User Awards.

This image of a Meadow Grasshopper was captured with previous uploads whilst out and about with my camera in a local meadow.

The Meadow Grasshopper is a resident of mainly damp, unimproved pastures and meadows. Grasshoppers go through a series of moults from wingless nymphs to winged adults, shedding their exoskeletons as they grow. Nymphs are present from April onwards, turning into adults in June who feed on plants and grass. Males can be seen displaying to females by rubbing their legs against their wings to create a 'song' - in this case, a regular 'rrrr' sound. After mating, the eggs are laid in the soil in a pod, ready to hatch the following spring.

The Meadow Grasshopper is mostly green in colour, with a dark grey-brown stripe running across the flank to the eye, but brown and purplish forms also occur. It has short forewings that do not reach to the end of its abdomen and are particularly short in females. It is similar to the Field Grasshopper, but without the 'hairy chest'. Best identified by its song, which is a regular

I hop that you gave a wonderful day
