Schistocerca damnifica, 15 March 2015

Schistocerca damnifica, the Mischievous bird grasshopper;
Volusia county, Florida (15 March 2015).

I never get tired of saying the name “Schistocerca DAMNIFICA!” Why a fantastic name to say aloud. In central Florida, this is one of our more-abundant grasshoppers. Rather, I should say it’s one of our most-abundantly noticed grasshoppers. Others may perhaps be more common, but Mischievous bird grasshoppers tend to pop out in clear and present view. I see them frequently and often.
