Hi Zeca
Sorry, no idea on the ID as my books only cover the South African species, but I am hopeful that someone will do so soon.
It looks like a tired old grasshopper or else it is just catching up on some 'close eye' on its hammock of conifer leaves. Although it is a frontal view you managed to retain sharp detail throughout however the oblique angle makes one loose a bit of perspective. The colours are great and the exposure was well controlled. Just a slight pity that parts of its hind legs are hidden in the shade.
Anyway, it is a good effort and TFS.

Hi Zeca,

I don't know the ID either... but I really like your photo ! Excellent sharpness and details, beautiful colors, good composition and POV. Very well done !
