Gloriously Green

A bright green grasshopper, with black patterned wings, in my garden yesterday

I tried to identify above grasshopper via the Internet but was unsuccessful. However, I was thrilled to spot this vivid creature on a sisal plant  under my bedroom window and to practice my super macro photography on it.


  1. Wow, Jo, that is fabulous! I love its tartan wings.

  2. Marvellous capture, Jo! We also get very excited whenever any new visitor appears in our garden and having a macrolens for these occasions just makes the moment even more memorable :)

    I tried out Bill's wide angle lens in the garden this week to do a post on leaf litter, but I will need to practise a lot more as I have successfully distorted can see the's up...feel free to give me any advice you can think of, please! :)

    Big hug,

  5. Great close-up, Jo! I haven't seen a grasshopper like that before.

  6. I like this photo, Jo. I wonder if the insect is trying to hide against the green. :)
