[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As you can see,this is a very old shot from my archives.
I took this back in March of 2005 on my old 2 megapixel Lumix FZ2
I can't say what species of grasshopper this is,but it does seem that the bloke grasshopper has a definite interest in the lady grasshopper.
If anyone knows the species I'd be surprised.
Many New Zealand insects are endemic,perhaps these are not?

Hope you like the shot anyway.
Thanks for looking,

Hello Steve
Nice capture with vivid colors and good details.

Hi Steve, my neighbour today :)
Old yet beautiful macro shot. Not surprisingly I also don't know the ID, but I know this pic has great leave textures, nice warm color tones and showing an insect specie which I've never seen before. Great job MF.
Best regards from Your friend, who is living physically very far from You, but who's Your neighbour at the same time (today) :)

Hello Steve!

This photo looks like taken straight from medieval book - it is flooded by an alchemical symbols :-) Very allegoric and naughty :-)

Hi Lord,
this is a beautiful one. The sharpness is very exciting in noting the texture and features of the insects. The long feelers have always been exciting to watch. The green leaf gives a very lovely and impressive canvas to your composition.
i just like their conversation.

This image caught my eye Steve.
Firstly the long antennae, the sound organ on the back of the male and the female's long ovipositor tell us that this pair is a species of Cricket (having a single day's match;)) but their species ID is beyond me.
Nice one from your archives with good technical qulities despite the 2 megapix.
Thanks and cheers,
