Very unusual creature Lou! I like both - main picture and the worshop. It looks that this species must be rather abundant in this area.

Woh! Here in Venezuela there, although not very copious. It's a really tiny insect nervous. You've made a good effort for this photo, a result good enough to appreciate the chars of this small kind of grasshoppers. I do not know the exact ID, must be difficult to find. Good work!

Though a little soft, this is a fine nearly 5-year old macro taken from a good POV that shows the features of this strange grasshopper species with good clarity and colours against a nice contrasting stoney BG. You did well to get close to the ID.
Thanks and best wishes,

Alweer een bijzonder beest, vreemde sprinkhaan. Prachtig weergegeven in zijn natuurlijke omgeving. Prima scherpte en natuurlijke kleuren.
P.S. Heb je de opmerking van mij bij je vorige foto gezien?

You find the most interesting things! I have never seen a black and white grasshopper before. You show him in fine detail in the natural setting. The workshop is amazing - it looks like they are dancing.

Magnífica fotografía de este curioso ( y precioso) insecto, tipo saltamontes, que no conocía... supongo que como la mayoría. Bellos colores y fondo aunque con una profundidad de campo algo justa.

This is a very handsome grasshopper.
The details are nice and sharp, and the exposure is good on that black and white tuxedo of his.
The side POV also gives a good view of the markings on this unusual insect.
While in Monte Verde, I came across this gigantic purple grasshopper.
I had a hard time finding his name as well.
TFS. : )
