[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this 'powerful' grasshopper on Madeira.
It was hidden in the vegetation and stayed resting there for a longer time so that it was possible to take a series of pictures.

I'm not sure on the identification. Perhaps someone can help in this case.

Location: Madeira, close to Paul da Serra.

Hi Peter,
Beautiful view. Excellent photo. Nice point of view.
Have a nice evening

GReat focus on this insect, sadly, no clue on ID


An amazing capture from a grasshopper with superb details, Peter!

The contrast against a well blurred Bg is well kept and light is balanced too.
Good exposure in bringing out important details of its body parts.
Well caught!
