Nice Hat

By MarkyMarc
I'm not sure what type of insect this is, I think perhaps it's a variety of Stonefly.

1/100 @ f/6.3, tripod, flash

Thanks for looking, best viewed large.

No idea on the ID Marc, but will check back in case anybody has?.....It's probably something native to your part of the world, hence me not being able to find it in my books.
But what an interesting looking insect, I was inclined to think it might be some kind of stilt bug, but you really have got me at a loss.
I urge anyone looking at this to check the large version where the detail is amazing.....Well done mate!

Thanks for the comments guys!

Ade - looks like my Stonefly guess is wrong, I can't find any that have fuzzy antennae.
