This little Southern Green-striped Grasshopper(Chortophaga australior) was lucky that it was too big to be affected by the sticky and carnivorous Dwarf Sundew (Drosera brevifolia) plants. If you look closely, you can see that there are threads of stickiness trailing from its hind legs. For info about the grasshopper, including why it has green in its name, go to the BugGuide link below
