Hi Bugman, I took this picture back in 2002 while in Suriname volunteering with the Peace Corps. They were happy grasshoppers and quite docile.

Hi Brian,
We are posting your images, which we are guessing were shot on slide film and later digitized, however, we don’t have the time this morning to try to identify them more specifically.  Perhaps one of our readers will be able to help classify them before we can attempt some research.
