Hallo Yiannis
This is a very interesting hopper to look at, as it has some fascinating features that is beautifully displayed, I especially refer to its eye, the plumpish, almost fat body and the little "ball" under the wingstructure that looks like a pearl. A great image with a pleasant composition and close point of view. Best regards and thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Yiannis,
What an unusual looking insect, reminds me of a cross between a katydid and a cicada. Tac sharp focus and just the right exposure. What a large eye it has. Well done!!
