I found this grasshopper while watering my landscape. Thinking it was part of the flower, I was amazed when it jumped in my direction. Searching the internet I was very disappointed and yet intrigued that I could not find anything that matched the specimen that I had found. After continuing to search I was excited to find one like it on this site! As much as I wanted to keep this special little creature I did set it free in the exact same spot that I found it in.
