-grasshoppers have their ears in their abdomen
-there are over 11,000 species of grasshoppers, and each species creates a different rhythmic sound that distinguishes it from all others
-their hind legs act like mini catapults, springing the insects into the air
-they are strong fliers
-they are high in protein (if you're into insect snacks)
-they existed long before the dinosaurs
-they spit brown liquid the repel predators

    If you think this was designed deliberately by an entity, then it certainly is sophisticated!

    Nicely photographed,but equating complex lifeform to sophistication may be a bit of stretch....

    Nicely composed with great detail. Great use of DOF to blur the background.

    A very appropriate entry and I enjoyed all the information. They had plates of these ground up and baked for tasting at our local bug show. I'll try not to let my dislike for this insect affect my vote :-)

    Great example of nature's sophistication. I love the added information about grasshoppers. How do they stack up to the cockroach from a survival perspective? Well done image.

    I guess most life forms are fairly sophisticated. Good idea and well taken.

    Grasshoppers obviously are a lot more sophisticated than I had thought. But wish he stood out better from the bright leaves and were in a little sharper focus.

    Okay, you sold me on the sophisticated. Very nice composition and sharp as a tack.
