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.

Its like a tiny dragon, super and interesting Carol.

12 Feb 2013 6:47AM
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.

He is a strange looking one - he has changed colour to match the fall tones - he has also lost parts of his antennae! Poor thing.
