Well camouflaged, and a good capture in the grass. Very commendable to be able to get down that low, Russell Wink

Interesting creature well captured.
Where do you find all these bugs and beasties?
Being so small no wonder you nearly flattened him more!!

A great image, full of natural colours and superb detail, such a great macro-photograph.
