TIME OUT OF MIND

with so many similar insects , I am no longer certain this is 
 catagorized as a grasshopper.This insect seems hard to 
 come by - even in Florida .
Let Yourself Go
A large insect off the highway in Everglades National Park , Florida . Long lens used from 5 or 6 feet. Exposure adjusted slightly for detail . The insect shown above was, to the best of my recollection, even larger than it appears to be here . (They really are this big - or larger !) There are lots of insects and reptiles in the Everglades . Do as I did - bring insect repellent - & leave the shorts at home .
