found this fella today on my walk through the fields between Klein-Winternheim, Ebersheim and Nieder-Olm.

Non sono ancora sicuro della determinazione ma dovrebbe essere un giovane di Nadigella (Miramella) formosanta, fotografato all'alba in un pascolo fiorito.

Scuddérie à ailes oblongues (Orthoptera) cette photo est prise avec la lumière naturel il y a une petite vidéo plus loin! Un fav pour moi cette série!

This is one of the noisy Broad-winged Katydids (Microcentrum rhombifolium) that enjoyed himself while eating the leaves on my backyard tree this summer and autumn.His leaflike appearance served well as a protective coloration.

Molino d'Isella (Pv) - Orthoptera, Fam. Acrididae ....... per quanto riguarda la specie, non ne ho idea !!

Este animal se caracteriza por su cabeza cónica, que muestra un vértex (la parte superior de la cabeza) muy alargado, del que nacen dos antenas muy ensanchadas en la base. Las valvas del oviscapto son cortas. Los machos miden entre 2 y 4 centímetros, mientras que las hembras alcanzan de 3 a 8 centímetros.Las ninfas son verdosas, y los adultos de color pardo o marrón, aunque mantienen la base de las alas ligeramente verdosa. Se alimentan de hojas de diversas plantas. Habita en los pastizales húmedos y en los herbazales de ribera y dunas litorales. Los adultos pueden verse entre agosto y noviembre.

 

Se distribuye por Europa central y meridional, incluyendo las islas del Mediterráneo.

Tengo un identificado como "Ocnerodes brunnerii (Bolívar, 1876)" por insectario virtual

pero hasta que eso ocurrio, hice varias consultas y me dijeron todos mas o menos esto ...

 

la variabilidad morfológica externa de algunos ejemplares es francamente sorprendente, por lo que frecuentemente hay que acudir a la estructura de la genitalia de los machos....dar la vuelta la vuelta al ejemplar y hacer una foto de ventral sería en principio suficiente

 

Pues aun sabiendolo......boba de mi ya veis que a gustito estaba conmigo, ni se me ocurrio hacerle esa "put*" al bichito que tan feliz y calentito estaba sobre mi mano :))))

Thank you for being honest and critical ;-)

 

The Giant Leaf Katydid is China's largest Orthopteran. It is nocturnal and feeds on Ficus bark and leaves.

A mole cricket, so called because it digs like a mole and has its forelegs modified into a formidable pair of claw-tipped shovels. If you drop one of those onto not too hard soil, it will disappear in no time.

I found a cute grasshopper today while touring the Los Angeles Arboretum. It's too bad they do not open until 8am, because that's usually too late for deep focus stacks. This is a 3-shot stack, natural light, taken at about 9am. The grasshopper moved too much for more shots.

Oi!

Esse gafanhoto era bem grande mas extremamente tranquilo e contribuiu bastante para a realização do clique.
