Mysterious Rainbow-Hued Grasshopper – Any Guesses?


I almost couldn’t get any shot at all of this tiny, incredibly colored grasshopper baby. The image is small because, frankly, it would fall apart if enlarged at all – I just couldn’t get close enough to this elusive, fragile and flighty little wonder. But you can see the loud, improbable colors. I don’t know what species this is – If you know, please feel free to ID him in the comments section. Thank you!


Here he is eating, harvesting, digging or something.


These may not be artistic shots, but I wanted to post to ID purposes – Anyone have any idea what he is? Found near Atlanta, GA area.
