It is that time of the year when these large insects move into our area. They cause great damage to crops,gardens but especially the vines which is why as I type this I can hear tractors in the distance spraying in the vineyards.
Thanks for the comments on yesterdays upload.

He appears to be pawing the ground with malicious intent...
I love the way you have composed/cropped this around the antennae, they seem to be exploring the space available. Good one.

Pests in every sense of the word Alvar. But beautifully captured here. Even though they are pests they are very colourful. Smile

Well the 'Éphippigère des vignes' is actually quite harmless , it is the far more widespread 'provencale' who does the damage.
and is a really fine macro !!!
