Insects continue to surprise me no end. Why this grasshopper came to drink tea from our thermos is beyond me. Yet he did. Can someone tell what species it is? I couldn’t find it on a cursory search on the net.

My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains
My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk,
Or emptied some dull opiate to the drains
One minute past, and Lethe-wards had sunk:
That I might drink, and leave the world unseen,
And with thee fade away into the forest dim ...
