Bohemia Ecological Preserve

Grasshoppers have antennae that are generally shorter than their body and short ovipositors, thus the name Short-horned Grasshopper. They also have complex mandibles that cut and tear off food. Some species make noises by rubbing their hind femurs against their forewings or abdomen, or by snapping their wings in flight. We found this interesting blue-legged Grasshopper at a workshop with Kandis Gilmore. Look for Bohemia workshops at: http://www.landpaths.org/events.
