I almost jumped out of my skin when I turned around and saw this huge grasshopper at the base of the bird bath in my yard today (Dunnellon, Florida). I don’t know if I’ve ever seen one so big. I gathered my nerve and ran inside to get the camera, and sure enough he was still there long enough for me to get two shots. I think it looks like a mechanical, colorful robot — quite beautiful when you study it! I will upload both photos, as the other one shows him from the top. I have found out the name of this is an Eastern Lubber Grasshopper.
