Red-legged Grasshopper

 This Grasshopper leapt into our path, then stood out with its bright red trim. A stop light went on when he landed - and he waited long enough for us to get a few shots before streaking off. Identifying grasshoppers previously hadn't been an easy task, but I found a site this time that perfectly ID'd this one with its striped, red legs. And then I found some interesting tidbits: unlike most grasshoppers, these ones are comfortable in damp areas, and; though I found the bright green and red combination quite striking, Red-legged Grasshopers also come in a rarer version of blue.
