About 20mm 眼優角蚱 (Eucriotettix oculatus)
Other shots were even less clear, unfortunately. Found within a foot of slow-moving creek.
Elizabeth and I had a GREAT time at Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge -- there must have been some bad flooding a while back, so it looks like visitation has been low... Anyways, we're going back sometime!
Enjoyed going to Little Fossil Park in Haltom City this evening. :) I ran out of daylight though, so I'll have to come back -- next time with a dip net to catch some aquatics.
Need some help with what this might be. Is it a grasshopper or what?
