Aaahhh, so it really is a grasshopper. I thought a grasshooper was something else entirely.

Not your typical grasshopper. Hard to tell from this angle, but if it is as small as I think it is (under 1"), then it is a tree cricket. If it is larger, then some kind of Katydid. Typical grasshoppers have short antennae; katydids (also known as longhorned grasshoppers) and crickets have long ones.

Nice shot, though - sharp and anice lowangle. For identification purposes a side view would be helpful.
