Dactylotum bicolor: ThePainted Grasshopper

This psychedelic grasshopper looks like it’s one of those “paint-by-numbers” projects with all its amazing colors! I've actually never seen one this colorful, but have seen the more red and black variant. The rainbow grasshopper, aka the painted grasshopper or barber pole grasshopper, is native to the United States, Canada and northern Mexico. .............................................................. #science #nature #animals #education

A bottle containing a mysterious 126-year-old note was recently found hidden away inside the wall of a building in Boston. A person living in the Back Bay near Commonwealth Avenue found the bottle tucked into a space between their fireplace flue and an interior wall. The note inside the bottle had the name “Tom Ford” scrawled on it, along with the phrase “6 on Shea.” It was dated Sept. 23, 1894. Some think the note may be a record of a bet on a sporting team. https://whdh.com/news/bottle-containing-126-year-old-note-found-hidden-inside-wall-of-boston-building/ .................................................................. #earth #science #archaeology #news
