I have found this Ak Grasshopper in Chennai (India) coast. Very beautiful and coloured. I was wondering whether these colours are for camouflage or natural?.
Also I heard that we cannot spot them after September. This photo was taken on 17th Oct 2015.
Can I have more details

The Ak Grasshopper is a Toxic Milkweed Grasshopper in the family Pyrgomorphidae, and we suspect the coloration is aposomatic or warning coloration to inform predators that it is a toxic species.
