[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a full frame with no crop of this green little creature that stands on the edge of Anemone coronaria, This picture was taken in the same place of my former post, I waited for something intersting to give me another dimension on the flower and this bug apears for few seconds.
This is a real problem to take bugs pictures on this red flower, because they can't see red colours like we are and there is almost no bags on them.
I am not sure about the bug species it can be aBush Cricket nymph (Leptophyes punctatissima) or Long-horned grasshopper nymph, any help is welcome.

Well done on this capture of the cricket like insect having a turd. :) Fine details and color. Excelent composition.
Not sure about the saturation of the flower though, maybe a bit "hot"?


Elroyie, I see you've included the whole antenae! looks like he's considering a leap into the abyss ;-) An unusual comp. that works for me..Red on green provides great contrasting color..Well done!
