I spotted another acrida ungarica this week, not a brown one this time but a rather pleasing green.

A fascinating insect beautifully posed and captured. Many of us mere mortals would have failed to recognise this as being a living creature...

In the right vegetation, this specimen would be completely camouflaged and I guess might even escape your eagle eye, Carol.
Marvellous shots, again the detail quite immaculate: as I have said before, that Lumix in your hands really delivers the goods.

You must be very in tune with everything all creatures do and sound like. To be able to find them and capture them so well. Your knowledge of where they hang out etc. Excellent detail in these Carol.

Beautifully accomplished, I must say. It does look like it was a patient specimen, posing like that.
