This green bug's caught my attention recently. My first thought when I
saw it was, "WOW, what a cool grasshopper
!" Then I noticed the antennae
were long and slender. I think it's a cricket.
Now that I'm looking for these lime green bugs
I see them more often -
generally as they're hopping deep into the shrubbery. This tiny
green cricket is sitting on a Cassia
leaf. They do blend in
well. I was photographing a flower spider when I noticed this colorful
cricket on the Wild Poinsettia plant
right beside my camera! Boy did I
Cool camouflage, isn't it? Even when I go out looking for these
they're hard to find. It helps that two of them seem to have favorite
spots. I've found this one on the
and another on
several times now in the same location.
That little cricket by my finger is on a
leaf. This one to
is on a Spanish Needles
leaf. The cricket is missing a leg.
This last green hopping bug is different. I only saw it the one time; it
was perched on a Wild Coffee
leaf. I'm guessing that it's some other sort of cricket.
