Handsome Trig

Hi Bian,
We did not see your identification request the first time you sent it.  We consulted with Eric Eaton on this and his response is:  “Daniel:  Ok, the cricket is a nymph of a female redheaded bush cricket, Phyllopalpus pulchellus.  Nice image.  They really are a gaudy insect, especially when they are young:-)  Eric
”  We are linking to the Bugguide information page on the Red Headed Bush Cricket which is also called the Handsome Trig.  We have a vague recollection of that unusual name being in the news recently with regards to the national elections.
