[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Re-post: Following Claudine's comment I've decided to repost this photo after cropping it, reducing the top of the photo above the insect, I believe she was right about that, especially since it's brighter than the rest of the image and distracted from the already well hidden grasshopper. I hope you'll also find the result is better

Original note:

Arthropoda - Insecta
Orthoptera order (grasshoppers, katydids, crickets)
Caelifera sub-order
Acrididae family (short-horned grasshoppers)

genus and species undetermined (sorry!)

Picture taken on the sand dunes of Tyre Coast Nature Reserve in South-Lebanon. Cropped and resized for TN.

Muy detalle de la cabeza del acridio con la hierba que contrasta!!!!

At least this insect can hide now from whatever is happening there now!
Good example of mimetism!

Salut Betty,

C'est très drôle! Comme je suis complètement accro de TN, je passais devant mon ordinateur et décida de jetter (encore) un coup d'oeil à la galerie et voilà la suprise! Tu as bien fais! Claudine
