Was really thinking about Lazarote looking at your picture! Amazing red color, fitting perfectely to the black environment. I didn't know that Reseda flowers were foodplants for bath Whites. I know some place where they grow, next year I will go to have a look..
Always nice to see a grasshopper, I like them a lot and find them very photogenic :-)
Have a nice Sunday

What an interesting grasshopper... I have never seen anything like it. Amazing colour.
This summer we had a visitor here in Småland of a mutual friend I think (Sigge L. from the botanical museum in Lund) and he managed to get me hooked on dragonflies and all that, so I guess I will also post some insect photos further on... ;o)

Bonjour Ivan, what a thing, I never even thought grasshopper could be red. This is a great shot, with nice notes, very good sharpness on the insect, and a nice contrast of the red against the coal. I didn't even know we could find coal like that on the ground. Thank you, I will go to bed with more in my head!

Rather surprising colour of this grasshopper. I've never seen red one. Very interesting observation and explanation in your note. To be honest red colour is perfect for composition with black rocks :-)

the band of Mick Hucknall's (the red man),that I also like their music
has suggested the title for this unusual red grasshopper for North Europe, the color would be more suitable climates in most warm .. good capture and details
good week sERGIO
