I believe this is the common red-legged grasshopper Melanoplus femurrubrum.
I'm specifically posting this because I really like the texture in the eye.

...I suck at naming my photos.

All comments are welcome and appreciated. My apologies for my late replies.

Love the detail. :D I've seen only one grasshopper in probably the past 3-4 years. :(

You're welcome. :)

Yeah, I'm back in the "big" city, but on the outskirts a bit. :P I grew up in the country basically and saw them ALL the time. I miss seeing a lot of insects (like fireflies) and animals around where I live. :(

They say you're never more than a few feet from a spider. That's probably more true in the area I live in though! :)

Wow, fantastic detail, the focus is perfect! Well done, Madeline! :)

As far as naming photos goes, I like to use a thesaurus, or sometimes titles from songs. Or for this particular shot, maybe using the scientific name would be an interesting idea. ;)

Thank you! :D

It takes me a bit of time to figure out a name usually, sometimes I'm too lazy to come up with a clever one :P
