So he took some colour and......
Again I am surprised to find these colours in northern germany, expecting such colouration in much warmer climates.

nice pics. when I went to the Miccosukee Indian Village last week I had time to take about 30 pictures of grasshoppers! They were all around and let me practically touch them! This guy was the most common there, I saw one colored like yours when I was leaving but that one didnt let me get too close, only got 1 pic of him. here's my favorite 'hopper picture

this must be a giant, compared to mine!
Thanks for sharing.
On my golden bug session, the small hoppers even sat on my camera.
But the bigger one´s were shy. So I used the Mcon-40 achromat a t the maximum distance. But even then they turned away:

these german "giants" are 30-40mm long.
The achromat is necessary because you have to keep the distance.
