Species: Painted Grasshopper | Location: Western Ghat Region, Maharashtra (Navi Mumbai), India

During a rainy evening while strolling with my camera among the roadside bushes I spotted these painted grasshoppers on an aak branch. I could not take any shot as the light was dull. Next day, in the early morning, I visited the place again and was fortunate enough to get this rare pose of two of them.
