Grasshopper Nymphs

Photos by Ned Harris


Both grasshoppers pictured here are nymphs (i.e., not adults). Grasshoppers undergo 'incomplete' metamorphosis. Nymphs look like mini-adults when they hatch from the egg. Nymphs eat, grow, shed, and repeat until the final shed, after which they have fully developed wings and are fully developed adults.
