Grasshopper (?Sp.)
   

Actual size 30mm, Queensland Australia

Canon300D with 100mm f2.8 macro lens, f/16, 1/160 with fill in flash

A grasshopper perfectly camouflaged on dark lichen covered rock, and almost impossible to see. They seem to be able to change the shade of their colour to match their background flawlessly.
