Ya know, I saw a bunch of things like that in Arizona in Oct, and was wondering if they were crickets or grasshoppers.

I think that last one is a cricket and the rest are grasshoppers.

2 of 7. I was outside chatting with a neighbour when this little ball of feathers and fluff started bouncing up the steps towards us. It is a baby brush-turkey, only a few days old. These ground based birds have to fend for themselves from the moment they hatch and they can fly short distances within a few hours of being born. This little guy flew on to the top of this pergola, across the beams and then back down to the beam. That was the first time either of us had ever seen one of these birds fly. Also a photo of an adult for what they look like when they grow up. They aren't pretty and they are no relation to North American turkeys.

Mine was taken in South Carolina. A local told me it was a locust, but I’m pretty sure it was some variety of grasshopper.

They are all grasshoppers, the second phone, the one with the yellow green coloring is:

Each of your submitted images is a different species of Grasshoppers, so we will be dealing with them individually. Your final image is of a Horse Lubber, Taeniopoda eques, a species of Grasshopper that is pictured on BugGuide. According to BugGuide: "Too bulky to properly fly, though long-winged males can coast a short distance. Males make clicking sound apparently with wings. Length of wings varies greatly, with some individuals having fully developed wings that exceed the tips of the abdomen and hind femora. Some of these long-winged individuals can briefly take to the air, but not so as it can be properly called "flight". In others the wings are much shorter, and they can be used for little more than a threat display. These insects (especially males) will not hesitate to rear up, wave their front legs, spread their wings, make hissing sounds, and even lunge toward perceived threats. This can be quite entertaining for us humans, but apparently it is an effective defensive behavior. In addition the insects' bold coloration is believed to be aposematic in nature, an advertisement of unpalatable or toxic chemicals contained within the insects' bodies."

Third one, and maybe the first bug is:

a Plains Lubber grasshopper, Brachystola magna, another flightless species that is pictured on BugGuide. According to BugGuide: "Large, colorful grasshopper. Flightless. On the central and southern Great Plains, individuals reach their largest size, and are more often (especially females) predominantly green. In the Southwest they tend to be smaller, more varied in coloration, but most often predominantly brown."

Whats amazing to me is some folk see these aminals everyday and dont appreciate their beauty. Its only until captured on film that you can see them for what they are.

Thank you all for bringing this here.
