Blue-winged grasshopper

It is still a good time for taking pictures of grasshoppers. At the end of September I was able to seduce this Blue-winged grasshopper (Oedipoda caerulescens) to fly before my lens. The high-speed system got him just at the right moment, as the grasshopper unfolded his blue hind wings.    © René Krekels    januari 2003
