Mating Flightless Grasshoppers

Dear Martin,
Your image of mating flightless Grasshoppers is gorgeous, and it is shot from the perfect angle to illustrate the activity.  We found a matching image on TravelBlog, but it is only identified as a Giant Flightless Alpine Grasshopper.  We will have to post this as unidentified and get back to it later.
