Unknown Hairy (Hirsute) Grasshopper. For you grasshopper experts out there, here's a really cool, hairy grasshopper I found perched on my Plumeria tree the other day. IDs are welcome. Google was not much help on grasshopper IDs. Maybe somebody will make a grasshopper's of Southern California page one of these days!
As for me, I've never seen anything like it. I will note that I have seen quite a variety of different grasshoppers in Southern California - nothing at all like the two species we had back home in Hawaii and nothing quite like this one.
