It looks like some species of the grasshopper family.....the tobacco spitting type, maybe. It looks as though it's munching on the bamboo.
it's a lubber grasshopper Romalea microptera aka Georgia Thumper
They eat plants like crazy. If you have bunches of them, spray a garden insecticide for control.
Thank you... no wonder they look so healthy, they are eating my plants! I'm never sure which "bugs" are good or not so good. Thank you Walter.
lokks like my friend

my first thought is a grasshopper, locust or a cricket...
insects are something I am not very educated on.
