Thank you to Pete Thomas (Borderline Photo) for sending in his photo of this pink grasshopper.

The colour of the grasshopper is caused by erythrism, a little known genetic mutation statistically, it is easier to win the lottery than see one, most wont
make it to adult life as they are very susceptible to predators.
