Some Grasshoppers, Katydids and Crickets…

I wandered around northeastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota a few years ago collecting video-images of selected common Grasshoppers, Katydids, and Crickets.  These images are archived below with the hope that they may be of some value or interest to local naturalists.  Enjoy!
