Artist's Description

Grasshoppers have antennae that are almost always shorter than the body (sometimes filamentous), and short ovipositors. They also have pinchers or mandibles that cut and tear off food. Those species that make easily heard noises usually do so by rubbing the hind femurs against the forewings or abdomen (stridulation), or by snapping the wings in flight. Tympana, if present, are on the sides of the first abdominal segment. The hind femora are typically long and strong, fitted for leaping. Generally they are winged, but hind wings are membranous while front wings (tegmina) are coriaceous and not fit for flight. Females are normally larger than males, with short ovipositors. Males have a single unpaired plate at the end of the abdomen. Females have two pairs of valves ( triangles) at the end of the abdomen used to dig in sand when egg laying. This nice sized grasshopper saw me and froze. I guess he/she decided that blending into it’s environment would be the best course of action. I had no complaints because I got this shot as a result. I took this shot near the shore of Lake Telemark in Rockaway, NJ. I used a Nikon L110 digital camera.
