Grasshoppers everywhere... I never realized there were so many different species...
This one is a female (see the long oviscape !) Isophya pyrenea !
The family Tettigoniidae, known in American English as katydids and in British English as bush-crickets, contains more than 6,400 species. It is part of the suborder Ensifera and the only family in the superfamily Tettigonoidea. They are also known as long-horned grasshoppers, although they are more closely related to crickets than to grasshoppers.
Nowadays, the grasshoppers are really invading the gallery...

"Nowadays, the grasshoppers are really invading the gallery, nowaday, nowaday!" Eh be m... j'ai pas réussi à en photographier une cette année. Mais je suis heureux qu'un compatriote sauve l'honneur en publiant une, une très belle d'ailleurs. Bravo Michel et bonne soirée, G.
