In which our fearless hunter discovers a grasshopper

Hey whats this?
I've seen the coolest grasshoppers a couple of times now here in Florida.  I think they're called Lubber Grasshoppers and they are so colorful.  Their primary color is a sort of maize gold and they have stripes and dots of black and sometimes a swipe of reddish orange along their back too.  They blend in well in the shadowy spots under trees where they rest on the dead leaves.  I've been trying to get a photo of one so I can check to see what the species is exactly.  I saw one this morning on our walk and Katie was just as interested as I was ...
Ack! Big dog on the sidewalk!

I see you in the grass
