I have been told, that when I was very young I called these insects "hopper grasses" instead of grasshoppers. From this family story, I would assume that grasshoppers have been part of my life even before my memory of them. I am aware that both grasshoppers and ants re: this food. Although I can say that I am not a habit of doing so. I am not sure if these grasshoppers were merely sitting on the yellow flower or actually eating it, but I did notice them. Many photographers prefer a "macro" lens for this type of close-up work, but if you are walking around taking photos, you may not have either the time or the availability of a lens to change. In this case, before was taken with a telephoto lens setting.
