Omocestus viridulus

Common Green Grasshopper - Usually flies from April to October. The sound grasshoppers make is made by rubbing the hind legs against the folded wings. It's chirp last for around fifteen to twenty seconds and is unmistakable when walking through long grass in the summer. These were photographed in Co. Leitrim.
