Alternative title: 'Visitor from outer window'
This green fellow just visited our bedroom and saved the day by allowing me to snap a few. Luckily he was completely dazzled by the bedside lamp so I could position the cam within 10 cm without him feeling observed...
WOW, nice lens/huge cricket Andrew @ 2006-July-18 02:14
These are such interesting critters. They look like they have been assembled from a kit of parts. A clean chance shot here. AG @ 2006-July-18 04:53
How did you get it out? :-)
Sharp capture, though I'd love to see it with a little narrower aperture ring, however macro trend goes sharp right? Cheers Emré @ 2006-July-18 07:31
very cool! and what luck!...that sucker is green! Ash @ 2006-July-18 07:34
Wow amazing color and the sharpness is perfect! Kris @ 2006-July-18 09:27
nice macro - love his green colour! david @ 2006-July-18 12:35
He almost seems to be waving at you with the other antennae! the bokeh is especially nice, as are the colors. It's pretty amazing to see a little guy like this in so much detail. matthew @ 2006-July-18 15:40

I love how its right antenna bluers into the background ! Albedo @ 2006-July-18 20:55

Geniales Makro :-) Ist das ein Heupferd? Karl Baumann @ 2006-July-18 21:54
Stunning colour, this is great Phil @ 2006-July-18 21:59
Awsome! Now I just want to buy a macro lens! ;) stian @ 2006-July-18 22:15
I wouldn't want this to visit my bedroom, shot or no shot! I had three moths surrounding me the other day and I wasn't very keen on taking out my camera for sure :D It's really nice though :P Minna @ 2006-July-28 10:37
Wow, amazing shot! So many details! Wolfgang @ 2006-July-29 07:49
I never thought of using a grasshopper to clean my sensor before. How do you do it - you give the beast a handkerchief and you have it crawl in there?
