|Hi Dear Friends,|

Do you know its name?

Hi Ilker, This immature "grasshopper" belongs to the the Order Orthoptera. I am not a specialist of this group, but judging from the very long filimentous antennae, it appears to belong to the family Tettigoniidae. You can tell it is an immature specimen by the presence of "wing pads" only (just above the middle pair of legs). Adults have fully developed wings that extend to the tip of the abdomen or beyong (usually). An awsome critter. Great DOF ... amazing at F/3.0.
