I mentioned grasshoppers in my last post and there wasn’t just that one that I included in the post … there were loads! It made me laugh seeing them springing around everywhere as I walked through the grass near the village pond.
I was trying to identify these but it seems like telling grasshopper species apart is rather tricky, so I gave up!
This one was teeeeeny! Those are little bits of wood chip and I think the bit it’s sat on was a pine needle or similar. Cute isn’t it? 🙂
And here’s a shiny green one which I think may be a female as it looks like it might be laying eggs in the 2nd picture.
