Very ornamental grasshopper

I'm trying to identify a cool grasshopper that frequents our property, although it's not the dominant kind by a long shot. It looks a lot like, and may be, Schistocerca shoshone, the green bird grasshopper, or green valley grasshopper. They are huge, though. They probably get over three in...read more
