Found this beautiful grasshopper in our yard. I did not see any other quite like it on your website.
We believe this is a Toxic Milkweed Grasshopper in the family Pyrgomorphidae. We have numerous examples from Africa and Australia in our archives.
Update: December 13, 2016
Based on a submitted comment, we now believe this is Phymateus baccatus.
