Dear all,

this photo was taken yesterday during a tour to the Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve in Hong Kong.

I don't know if they are grasshoppers or other type of insects.

I look forward to the pointers from all of you. thanks a lot!

Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve lies in the southeastern tip of Hong Kong Island. The total sea area of this marine reserve is about 20 hectares.

Four Major rock types are found within the reserve. From the oldest to the youngest, they are the tuffs with volcanic bombs, granodiorites, porphyritic rhyolites and basaltic dykes, respectively. Geomorphologically, the Marine Reserve has typical exposed rocky shore of south-easterly-directed capes and headlands in Hong Kong. Its coastal features are the result of the interaction between prevailing wind, tidal actions and parent rock. The steep granite coast is rugged and irregularly stepped, with both up to a metre high vertical faces and narrow shelves often dipping back to retain temporary splash pools.

The biodiversity is rich in this Marine Reserve, including numerous kind of fishes, hard corals, soft corals, gorgonian and marine invertebrates. In order to protect these important habitats, water sports and coastal activities are not allowed.
