[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've been in Lithuania for two days and on the meadow beside the road took this shot.
Adult wart-biters are 31-37 mm long, with females being significantly larger than males. They are typically dark green in colour, usually with dark brown blotches on the pronotum and wings (a dark brown morphotype also occurs). The female has a long and slightly upcurved ovipositor.
The Wart-biter has a song consisting of a rapidly repeated series of short bursts of clicks, sometimes lasting for several minutes.
Wart-biters normally move about by walking; they rarely fly, except when frightened. Most can only fly 3 to 4 meters at a time.

hello Pawel,
Excellent capture of a female Wart-biter. Good sharpness and POV and nice composition in its natural habitat.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Good sharp image of this grasshopper-like insect, Pawel.
The subject merges well with the surroundings but still maintains its identity.
Thanks for looking at my recent picture and writing your comment on it.
TFS and regards.
