Hello Peter, my today's neighbor!
First of all - I do not agree that in this picture there is anything "boring". Green insect on gren leaf maybe is not too spectacular, but at least because of region - image is very interesting :)
The creature is interesting too, even for someone like me, who is not specialist in Orthoptera. Nice to find the antenna of hidden specimen! :>
All the best from winter Lodz,

In this case it's interesting to have the background of the same color, to evidence the camouflage capabilities of the insect. Well done. Congratulations and Happy New Year!

Great image again dear Peter.
In fact I'm a little bit envious about your trip in Indonesia.
You are in a paradise of incredible insects MF.
Thanks a lot for sharing this beauty.

What a special grasshopper. How did you find this green on green? You got sharp eyes. Great sharpness and details in beautiful camouflaged colours. Excellent POV.

A year of good health, happiness and all you want you and your loved ones!
A warm HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Thank you very much for the visits you've made on my gallery and comments frumaose that you wrote.
I note that you started the new year 2010 with an exceptional macro.
Peter! this surprises me, but in October of 2009 I photographed a couple of insects equal to that here in Venezuela!
I found in a rain forest at 1,200 masl near a creek, among the foliage of plants. The place is in the state of Carabobo, central mountains of the coast.
I have not posted my photos because I was a bit low quality (more than usual) and because I do not know what kind of insect is this!
In gratitude, I wanted to publish these two pictures as WORKSHOP for this shot. I hope it will be useful.
Very good catch, thanks for the information attached.
I repeat: The nature amazes me! two insects alike in places as distant.
Thanks for sharing and teaching!

Amazing capture you show us here of this grashopper.
I can imagine that it´s difficult to see the green of the grasshopper is the same as the green in the background and it contrast a little with it.
But i always am pleased seeing an insect the first time, therefore thank you for sharing it.
