ID's Needed

This summer, iNaturalist has received a lot of observations! Although this is good, the backlog results in routine observations buried in the Needs ID column. I would like to see an organized effort to ID birds over the next month. This will improve iNaturalist's reputation with users. New users will be happy to see the community ID their obs., not be disappointed by lack of response.

I'm not suggesting trying to do the impossible of ID'ing everything, but there are a lot of routine obs. getting ignored.

Red Grashopper

BEFORE YOU READ- THE ATTACHED OBSERVATION IS NOT OF THE SUBJECT. IT WILL BE EXPLAINED IN THE POST.

You're mentioned in this post because I have an grasshopper ID and I don't have a photo. This is completely unlike anything I've ever seen before. I have seen a lot of grasshoppers. I saw a large, locust-like grasshopper fly up from the grass, and it was black with yellow edges to its wings. But when I found it on the ground, it was big, and it was RED. This is very unusual, it was 1)Not vibrant red, but super vibrant for a grasshopper! Red-orange and 2) looked just like a Carolina locust in flight.

The attached observation is a much different grasshopper. This is not what I mean by red. This was redder and larger, and the red was darker.

Is this an unusual color morph of Carolina locust, or just something common I've never seen?
