The Grasshopper

Grasshopper, Via del Porticciolo, Livorno
I took this picture at work: we had a guest on a window sill. My friend Stefano says that it should be an Anacridium aegyptium, but this time even he is not so sure...

Worth enlarging to see even better all those little details on this creature!
VP, your growing fame as a nature photographer must be spreading; now nature is coming to YOU to be photographed. :)

I think your friend could be correct VP, the markings look quite similar. Super macro.

I wonder what it was looking for on a window sill. FIt looks to be quite a big critter.

What a visitor you got.
(Smart to put the coin next to it, so the size is easy to see.)
