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.

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.
