Giant Grasshoppers in your Backyard!

I was heading back home when I spotted to big eyes looking at me on a small plant beside. My initial thought was that it was a Housefly, but upon taking a closer look, I realised that it was actually a big Grasshopper.
When I started to take my first few photographs, I found another one just behind me. In the end, I managed to find not one, not two, not three, but four of these Grasshoppers. One was a juvenile, about a centimetre long. The rest were large adults.

The Juvenile was very tiny compared to the adults. Maybe it was just a hatchling.
