Acrida ungarica, more commonly known as the slant faced grasshopper. Very well camouflaged, they are usually green or beige in colour, and are found in grassy meadows and barren areas of scrub.
Have a great weekend, everyone
A gorgeous capture - with no sense of scale, it looks absolutely huge!!
Love that eye.. And the circus version in v2!
If he weren't sitting a cross, you wouldn't see him!
Wow that 3rd shot is awesome, i dont think iwould sleep at night with all these strange and wonderful bugs around. As ever you set the standard.
A super set on images here Carol. I saw many of these in Africa when walking through the veld. Nearly always seen because they flew a short distance as my walking disturbed the grass. I finally managed to get my images from yesterday uploaded. A
Impressive as always Carol
Amazing detailed shots Carol I don't know how you find them, you must glide like a ghost in the meadows
Three excellent images, Carol!
These wouldn't be what we called 'stick insects', when I was at primary school, would they?
An interesting looking creature.
Amazing looking insect, Carol. Looks like it is made out of wood!
Now I wonder how they came up with that name! Lovely clarity, Carol, they look as though they've been carved from wood.
V2 my favourite in this excellent set Carol,
Wow Carol, these are some of your best. Love the model.
Wow! Such clever photography Carol! These are amazing images.
Oh I like him! Three very good shots of this interesting chap!
Three great captures
So well camouflaged...
Don't know how you find them.
Excellent work as always

3 great images and what long legs.
These are lovely images Carol !! Excellent
I agree with Lynne, Carol. These are ammmaaazing. Especially V2 for me. What a weird and wonderful subject too!
Glad to make such wonderful images 30... magic stuff.
How wonderful. It looks as if it's carved out of wood. A beauty.
Very well spotted and photographed, Carol - I've never seen one of these before!
3 crackers but v2 is my fav
Very camouflaged indeed - I was trying to figure out what were legs and what were plant material?
The serrated jointed legs had me looking twice.
He certainly has his nose in the air! I think the Creator must have a marvelous sense of humor!
Stunning close ups Carol we really do live in a wonderful world with amazing insects like this.
Don't see many of these around Wakefield either! But I'd imagine these creatures are difficult to see anywhere, they're so well camouflaged! I agree with Chris, it does look like it's carved out of wood...
An excellent set as always, Carol, stunning work
Three incredible images Carol
Excellent captures, Carol, especially V1!!
OMGosh, that is fantastic, it looks like a piece of sculpture.
Love all three....well done,
