The dynamics of jumping in insects has recently been the subject of attention of several authors whose findings are reviewed by Hughes (1965). Analyses of jumping in insects and spiders have been based largely on high speed cine photography (up to 500 frames/sec.) using a synchronized flash source (Parry & Brown, 1959; Brown, 1965). Such apparatus is costly to purchase and operate and in this paper a simpler method for obtaining photographic records of jumping in grasshoppers is descriptionbed.
