Post by MacroLuv »

Green bush-cricket. Gal, I'm guessing? :D
She likes to eat flowers... and belive it or not... beetles! :shock:

Could have turned it over to have a look, don't you suppose? :lol: I don't know crickets or any bugs for that matter from diddly, well with the exception of a few I suppose but this looks like a Katydid to me. But, what do I know. :-k Some really sharp images of the cricket though, good work. :D

More than you think, maybe, Mike. :D Two names for the same critters. Family Tettigoniidae, named after genus Tettigonia. And yep, it's a gal -- that sword-shaped ovipositor gives it away.

Very sharp pictures, Nikola. #3 really pops!

Thanks guys. :D
Ken, those bugs looks pretty same for me from the underside. :lol:
Rik, I made 297×210 mm print of the third pic and it looks just great. :D
You can count every single dust particle from the petals and all wing veins are visible! :shock:
I think in this case I could be thankful for plenty of direct sunlight almost vertical on subject surface.

Yep, #3 has the better lighting. We here in the USA would probably label this some kind of katydid like Ken mentioned but your ID is correct and in Europe it is called a bush cricket. This is what we call bush cickets.... http://bugguide.net/index.php?q=search& ... sh+cricket it all depends on what side of the big pond you are on. :wink:
