I forgot about this shot and just found it again today.  I believe it is Booneacris glacialis, but I'm not much for grasshoppers and welcome corrections.  What caught my eye was the "alien face" that shows looking down at the top of its head.

Gorgeous! I am quite sure your ID is correct, sir. It appears to be a male. I really enjoy these 'hoppers. Their colours are quite spectacular.

Thanks for the confirmation Denis; don't think I have ever come across one before.

How KOOL!!  Just love to see anything out of the ordinary Danny!!  Great shot.

Great find and image, Danny!
