    Great capture !
    I haven’t seen one like this, so I guess it’s a South African variety.

  • It seems to be Trish! Thank you so much for your kind comment!

    Great caputure Nicole. That’s a Grasshopper or a locust
    and as beautifully colored they can be, as much damage they can produce in gardens and fields.
    In Florida they have stunning colors, from metalic green to red and blue.

  • Oh thank you very much Marcy for your very kind explanation! It didn’t know if it would be the same grasshopper as we know them from here.But our grasshoper are only grey I have never seen some in a color. Thank you too for your kind words about him!!¨
    Very much appreciated!
    Have a nice weekend,
    Nicole:)
