Acrididae sp. (Short-horned Grasshopper sp.)


Almost all species of grasshoppers are well camouflaged as they serve as food for parasitic wasps and flies, beetle larvae, birds and reptiles.
The individual on the photo is very well camouflaged with its surrounding environment.
I didn't see it until it jumped.
