[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It acts of a locust of the subfamily of Oedipodinae (I do not know the species precisely). It poses here on a pineapple. Oedipodinae are locusts which live on the ground or close to the ground, which generally raise cryptic colors and which are announced, on the other hand, by their wings often highly coloured. The picture is not as clear as I would have wished it, but I did not use my usual material. I think however that the composition is perhaps interesting. Hope you like it

Nice photo of the grasshopper and beautiful bromelia. Very good composition and nice colors.

Quite unusual contribution, presenting an unconspicuous little grasshopper surrounded by perfect tropical splendour. Strong rhythmical setting, exciting to look at - and quite funny, too. Thank you, Emmanuel!
Best regards,
