[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On our Moosalp expedition:

Anne Gattlen (anel), Peter Roos (batu) and I have enjoyed a day on the Moosalp together. There was this cry: "It's pink, it's pink!" that got us to discover this surprising female Stripe winged grasshopper (Orthoptera; Acrididae; Stenobothrus lineatus (Panzer 1796); Heidegrashüpfer; Criquet de la Palène).

ID: I used B. Baur et al. 2006. Die Heuschrecken der Schweiz. Haupt, Bern, Switzerland for ID. The species occurs widely in Eurosiberia and is found in all parts of Switzerland. But it likes sunny extensive pastures. There is much color polymorphism from green to brown to rosy. The stigma on the distal wing and bright stripes on thorax and forewing are telltale signs.

Hello Dietrich,
Very beautiful species, good sharpness and colours but BG is too gaudy and it disturb a little.
Regards, Pawel

Hello Dietrich,
A fine capture of a rose-coloured form of this species of grasshopper. I also posted a rosy form of another species last year.
The POV is excellent and shows the features of this S. lineatus with excellent DOF, sharpness and natural colours.
Thanks and have a good weekend,
Ivan

Lieber Dieter,
Sehe, dass Du sehr aktiv warst..und freue mich natürlich die pink lady zu sehen (vielleicht ist es auch ein er) Die Rosafärbung ist wirklich eindrucksvoll! Gute Bildschärfe und natürliche Darstellung. Die Landschafts-Bilder aus der Türkei sind auch sehr schön und eindrucksvoll.
(Bin zurück vom Val d'Hérens)
Herzliche Grüsse
Anne

Lieber Dieter,
gerade entdecke ich dein erstes Bild unserer Exkursion. Ich freue mich, dass du den Heugümper
so schön scharf abbilden konntest. So 'frei' konnte ich ihn nicht vor meine Linse bekommen.
Schöne Grüße, Peter
