Hello Christodoulos,
A beautiful grasshopper with big striped eyes, seems to be a mix of European and N'African species :-). I see that it has banded legs too. Excellent sharpness and a natural surrounding. Thanks to show us this species.
Have a nice weekend

Hello Christodoulos

Great macro of this insect, fine POV,
appropriate vertical framing, and the way
the insect is diagonally framed on the image
it gives dynamism to the photo, the great focus,
sharpness, and details contribute to that, TFS
