He's a bit scary looking! Does it bite?
actually it is sort of beautiful and color ful.they dont bite but this is a female ...that needle looking thing behind is the organ that it uses to inject her eggs inside plants or tree skin.
thank you for informations. This is not my favourite pet!
did you use any Telephoto lens? Great close up.
Very interesting insect
Very good shot!
Thankfully the hiking pole gives the scale of the grasshopper, otherwise I would think that this bug is right out of science fiction movie...as big as a bus!
Thanks for the comment and vote.
Great photo! The first time I saw it I thought that the walking pole was a weights bar and the scary alien was half a metre long!
I love insects! This is a really cool grasshopper... or... something. Great shot!
Thanks, Mark. Happy New Year.
that thing looks like it could bite your head off!
It received its 15 minutes of fame.
Now it's time to climb another mountain!
