[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The bee was a bit surprised to see this big guy in the flower, so the bee said: get out of my flower!.

It is a Anacridium aegiptium. (linnaeus1764) Family acridoidea

I think it is one of the largest grasshoppers we have in Spain. Females are 5 to 6.5 centimeters. It is normal to find them in the orchards, gardens and green areas. This came to my garden and perched on a pumpkin flower, he just wanted to take the sun for warmth. They don´t eat flowers, they usually eat green plants. Greetings to all.

hi Jose,
pretty well achieved this close up, .. like vivid yellow tone and bug detail. IMHO, hoverfly in the bg could have been cloned out, .. good capture anyway
