It could be O. viridulis but in the image, it looks to me as if the wings are protruding beyond the abdomen. I gather that is more a feature of the Field Grasshopper, Chorthippus brunneus, which has green variants.

See my observation at www.ispot.org.uk/node/90317 of a green Field Grasshopper. You will see that the side keels of the pronotum are much more strongly angled.
