Hopping around the Karoo

When you walk through the Karoo you can be forgiven if you don't happen to see one of these grasshoppers, because they blend into their surroundings so well. The only reason I found these was because of their efforts to escape being crushed under my boots.

I am new to insect identification, but I think this is the blue-wing grasshopper.

They are for sure camouflaged!

The camouflage is fantastic isn't it.
