Belle composition pour cette sauterelle étonnante ! La bonne qualité de la photo permet de voir la texture du corps qui ressemble à une feuille.
Well done !

Felipe, Interesting composition. Always fun trying to fit those feelers in the frame! This looks just like what we commonly call "Katydids" here in Texas. Great depth,detail & color..Great photo!
En general estos bichos Felipe, son desagradables o al menos, no tienen nada de simpáticos.
Pero la cara de este ejemplar, realmente es divertida.
Hermosos colores, con excelente nitidez y buen DOF.
Estas cámaras que no llegan más allá de F8... alli radica el único detalle por lo que eligiria una reflex.

Wauw what a thing, I thought it was a leaf,
But it is an insect, very good camouflage, very good capture, very good job Felipe.

This is a WOW shot! I really like the composition and you have capture this very well. The colors is excellent and the Sharpness excellent. The DOF needs special mention as the whole antennae is sharp.
Thanks for posting

Very sharp capture of this little fellow, and you even managed to keep one antenna within DOF range to show how long it is. I've noticed that critters with long antennaes will often wave them (or one of them) towards you when you're lining up for a shot. I don't know if they're capable of detecting movement by "feeling" the air.

I just found this and think its great.Do you use spot mode when taking these shots? We have this creature in New Zealand but they are a little bigger and greener. They are called Katydid.The species is Caedcia simplex.I'll get a shot of one later in the summer.

very elegant, well composed portrait of that cricket. I love the antennae crossing that picture diagonally from a long distance. The colour contrasts between red and green shades are very beautiful and artistically chosen. Details are perfect, too. Thank you, and best regards,

Hi felipe, having looked at it and mine and other web images I think it is the same as mine a Sickle bearing Bush Cricket. the wings are definatly of different lengths. and the size looks about right.
Good shot from a difficult angle along the length of the body. TFS yours Robert
