New Hoppers

If you listen carefully while walking along the lakeside near the willow tree, you will hear soft skittering of a couple new batches of grasshoppers.  They are small right now, no longer than a staple.
These are in their nymph stage.  Their skins are tough.  Like our bones, only theirs is on the outside. In order to grow, they will shed their skin several times before they are full grown.
The different coloring, one more golden brown and one more grey, could indicate different species.  Regardless of species, they all have the long and strong legs.  Perfect for hopping.

Hope you enjoyed!
