This is a small (aprox. 2 cm from head to blue pigidium) clown cricket from the Colombian lowlands of the western mountain range.

BeBe has another very nice photo of another similar clown cricket here in TN: under title "Two headed grasshopper"

Hi Carlos,

amazingly beautiful & colourful cricket. a very lovely & symmetrically captured with great sharpness & clarity. well done!


Hello Carlos,

Very nice picture of this colourful cricket. Good POV.
Good sharpness. Terrific colours. That seems to be a rather small insect. What is its length?

HI Carlos,
Interesting POV, although this has made it hard to get enough DOF for it all to be sharp. Certainly a very colourful grass-hopper; not one that I've seen before. Thanks.

Again, a beautifully captured cricket in fine focus and bright coloration Carlos, the fresh leaves of the fern enhance this composition my friend.

Hi Carlos

What an amazing creature, the most colourful cricket I've ever seen, TFS.
Good POV and good sharpness.
