Caption: Grasshopper nymph on a plant stem. Grasshoppers (suborder Caelifera) are hemimetabolous insects, meaning that they undergo incomplete metamorphosis from juvenile to adult. The nymphs moult five times, getting bigger each time, eventually reaching adult size with fully functional wings. This developmental stage (instar) has small wings. Photographed in the Kalahari Desert, South Africa.
