3 Images of Traulia ornata: An Okinawa Grasshopper
The Okinawa Mori Batta translates as, Okinawa Forest Grasshopper.
Some people would call it a locust.
Waiting for this bug to move, helped identify it.
The bright red on the lower part of the hind legs was a good clue.
Looking at the grasshopper from many angles, I checked lots of sources.
That way, no scientists can argue with me, when I name the critter.
The photos were all taken with a Pentax DA 50mm F1.8 lens on the K3 camera.
It's starting to look like, buying a decent macro lens, might happen in the near future.
