no hiding place

Amazing what can be seen taking a poorly dog for a morning constitutional around the garden.

I think a red acer is not a good camouflage for a green insect. Hopefully somebody can identify this for me.....
Fav Hazel love the hidden details in the back ground hope Anne and i can meet up with yourself and Ray again Gerry x

A Grasshopper beautifully capture in lovely colour and detail Hazel you did well to spot it and photograph it they don't stay still for long:)

Super close up with great details

Nice detail. I can't identify other than saying it looks like some kind of grasshopper.

Terrific insect capture and contrasting colours. I thought grasshopper but I havent seen one for years . Would be good to enter for the Contrast theme.

Hi Hazel - this is a type of Bush Cricket. A female one with that curved ovipositor. Crickets have a much more 'squidgey' (technical term!) body than a grashopper. A great find and not doing too well on the camouflage thing!

Love the contrasts here Hazel, even if it didnt serve as good camo for the insect!
