Dichromorpha viridis, 08 September 2013

Dichromorpha viridis, the Short-winged green grasshopper;
Volusia county, Florida (08 September 2013).

This is a set of Short-singed green grasshoppers. Females are typically larger than the males. In this image, you can see a male riding on the back of the much more impressive female, as they often do. The species ranges throughout much of eastern North America. These two were photographed along the edge of a road in Northern Volusia County.
