This gal is special.
She looks like a very big grasshopper, but she has developed the ability to fly more like a small bird. Her powerful back legs allow her to spring mightily into the air, and then she opens her large wings and flies with good control to a new resting spot, and lands there with confidence.
She is a gorgeous critter, but her eyes are certainly her main attractive feature!
Let's get in closer, so we can see the detail of their loveliness...
