Sir grasshopper

Don't know much about grasshoppers but I liked this one, when I was out to photograph some rocks. It was staying quite peacefully in place so I had the chance to take some shots. While it was a sunny day I still had to use a flash (and I didn't have it with me so I had to use the built in one).

I gave this title because I found it really funny looking like an old man in a military patterned tuxedo.

Hope you like it!

Hy Andor
Perfectly camouflated this grasshopper. I am wandering how you saw it between the rocks. The colors of the insect and the environment are almost the same: it seems a good adaptation. Well done!
Regards, Oana

Szia Andor!
Jöhetnél vissza, hiányzol... Fantasztikus mimikri, remekül elkapva. Egyszerű, de nagyszerű fotó. Bravo.
Baráti üdv, Laci
