You’ve probably seen the grasshoppers jumping through the grass. But do you know someting about them? I do not know too much. What I’m saying here is what I noticed watching them through the camera lens.
Adult grasshopper is from a few millimeters to a few centimeters long , and the color varies from pale red to greenish-gray. Its color is often given by the environment, being a defensive method.
Grasshopper is the most greedy insect. It eats daily a quantity of food equal to the weight of her body. That’s why it could be a terrible pest.
The life cycle of grasshopper consist in three stages: egg, nymph and adult. In the nymph stage, grasshopher looks like an adult with the only difference – it does not have wings.
I found the guy in the photo laying in the sun on this poppy flower, waiting for me to take a picture for the Macro Monday Challenge
This insect is only 8-9 mm long. Do you know the development stage of this guy?
