Caption: Female lubber grasshopper (Titanacris albipes) specimen. When disturbed, this insect will launch into an erratic flight, displaying its small green forewings and larger purple hindwings. The wings are iridescent and are partially transparency, and are used to frighten predators. The familiar buzzing song of the grasshopper is produced by the rapid motion of its hooked hind legs over its wings. The grasshopper's hind legs are enlarged and modified for leaping. T. albipes lives in grassland and open woodland in South America. This specimen was found in Guyana.
