I was out hiking with my friend when we ran across what I presume to be a grasshopper. It didn't seem very startled by our presence, and we were able to get some pretty cool pictures. I've been having trouble finding out what species it is. I was hiking near Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the grasshopper was about 1 - 1.5 inches in size. It was about midday when I saw it.
