I spotted this little fella, more commonly known as a fork nosed grasshopper, perched atop a cistus flower. They are usually found in long grass, but I think this one was on the look-out for a mate, so wanted a better view of its surroundings Smile

I can imagine why he or she chose to show himself off against the flower as you would hardly spot him in the grass. Well spotted and captured.
