Here is a differential grasshopper (Melanoplus differentialis) on a landscaping light, photographed on October 7, 2020 in Longmont, Colorado. These grasshoppers are not very picky, and have been eating our marigold leaves all summer.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm).
