One from my trip to Crete a couple of months back. One of the numerous impressive Grashopper species I saw there and one of the largest also at about 4 inches long. It was also one of the most varied I saw ranging from an almost flourescent green to very pale brown depending on the plants they were living amongst.

A perfect capture, John, he does look rather familiar to me, maybe he had a photo session in Rethymnon earlier in the year Wink Carol
