I like crickets but this does not look friendly.

There are many who have hatched lately and getting bigger. Saw one on the hibiscus but it scooted before I could take its portrait right and proper.

This one was sunning itself on the blue plastic chair.

Know its name? It's maybe an inch long. (Maybe a little less.)

Of course, they're growing. It was an inch when that was taken but the first ones I saw were maybe a quarter inch long. I don't think it has reached mature size yet.

No? Not even a guess I can google up? I'm all ears!

Well, whatever they are they aren't doing noticeable damage to anything.

That last one looks closest to what I'm seeing around here so I'll go with
Jumping (or False Jumping) Bush Cricket - Orocharis luteolira

And, thanks!
