[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This and further postings should be understood as a contribution to increase the knowledge on insects of Sulawesi.

Unidentified grasshopper species meeting an
unidentified very small ant.

Rain forest margin, about 20 km east of Kolaka (Indonesia, Southeast-Sulawesi).
I could observe many different species of grasshoppers at this place which I know since many years. It offers an entrance to the rain forest, i.e. there is a rivulet which allows to enter. Usually, there are no paths into the forest.

Lieber Peter,
Wieder ein so schönes Grasshopperbild! Witzige Szene, und mit einem lustigen Titel versehen. Interessant gelb-gestreifte Kreatur, die Du sehr schön fotografiert hast.
Es scheint, als ob in Sulawesi viele Spezies noch nicht erforscht wären!
Wünsche noch ein schönes Wochenende
Herzliche Grüsse

P.S. Thanks for correct ID for my last pictured hero.
