    Well for the last few summers we’ve had millions of them hopping all over the place, blasted nuisance, step on it Lol…..I think it’s just an every day grasshopper, or some people might call it a cricket???

  • You’re probably right Josie, I’d never seen a grasshopper this color though – only green ones – doesn’t mean they’re not all around me though!
