[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't know exactly what insect is on my picture. It looks to me like relative to locust or grasshooper but with much less developed back legs. Maybe someone on TN could help with ID?

Picture was taken in Aluszta, on Crimean Penisula last summer.

It's a grasshopper I think Greg. A green one:) on the beautiful flower. Lovely contrasts. I don't know the flower at all. Good composition and nice and summery. Well done.

Like the contrast between flower b/g the grasshopper.Great details.

There is something about this shot that really draws ones attention. Musty be the contrast in colours between the hopper and the flower. Good detail Grzegorz. Very well done

Interesting photo.
The colours are,no doubt, very vivid and they made nice contrast here.
For me this is a bit to colourful, but I like it anyway, especially now in the middle of "grey winter".
Thanks for posting :-)

Grzegorz, Great title, great impact with this red sea contrasting so well with the hopper! Well done!!

Hi Greg
As long as he does not see red . . .
This is a Katydid look under family Tettigoniidae and you might find him - I'm a bit of an ignoramus when it comes to bugs and their cousins - wish Paul was back!
Nice picture and good contrast between the red and green. IMO. I would rotate CCW by about 20 to get the katydid on a diagonal in the frame

Grzegorz have a look at THIS ONE I posted, it looks very much the same.
The pose is not very good this time, although with that wonderful red expositor it has it shows off very much. Thanks.

Just wonderful! I love colours, composition and... everything. One of my favourites!

Une tache verte sur un fond rouge. Joyeux contraste. Quelle antenne!
Un bon travail: image et note.

Wow Greg (much easier than Grzegorz) this shot is stunning! The colors here really complement each other and the sharpness is excellent.

Very well done and thanks for posting.

Swietnie skontrastowane, szkoda tylko ze sam pasikonik (najprawdopodobniej nadrzewek dlugoskrzydly - Meconema thalassinum) troche przeswietlony i przez to zbyt blady.

Ordo: Orthoptera Olivier, 1789
Subordo: Ensifera Chopard, 1920
