Meadow grasshopper in habitat, Netherlands Besides the macro aspirations of magnifying tiny things to the max, increasingly I&#039;m also trying to show their habitat, by taking a step back. So here&#039;s the very abundant Lesser marsh grasshopper in a habitat of very abundant common heather plants (in pink). This photo has a lot of detail, so you&#039;re invited to go full screen.<br />

So here's the very abundant Lesser marsh grasshopper in a habitat of very abundant common heather plants (in pink). This photo has a lot of detail, so you're invited to go full screen.

''Chorthippus parallelus'', the ''meadow grasshopper'', is a common species of grasshopper found in non-arid grasslands throughout the well vegetated areas of Europe and some adjoining areas of Asia. It is a well-studied organism in the discipline of Evolutionary biology and was an early and important model system for the study of European phylogeography.
