Adult Activities

It's harder than I thought to identify exactly what kind of grasshoppers these are.    There are a lot of grasshoppers out there.

Who knew?  

Turns out they are Differential Grasshoppers [Melanoplus differentialis].  You can tell because of the yellow legs and the black chevrons on the upper leg.   Very distinctive.

I thought these guys were engaged in a little adult activity, but it turns out they were multitasking.

They were eating my lemon tree.   

I chased them off and told them to go get a room. Geez.

Click the pics for a closer view of these lemon leaves.   They're pretty cool.
