[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We came across some strange looking insects. Thankfully during the whole trail I only saw 1 spider and I suspect it was dead. I definitely was not going back to see if it was or not. I only saw it AFTER I stepped over it, took one glance back, screeched and ran on.

This strange looking hopper looks like he has army gear and seems somewhat mechanical.

I dont fear locusts so I was able to get reasonably close to it with my macro lens, however as much as I tried to convince him to stand still he wouldn't as I would have loved to have captured a front shot of it.

Hope you enjoy!

Hi Rute,

A nice macro of a very weird looking insect the first time I have really seen a photo of these guys. Nice pov sharp details and nice colours.

Regards
Jon
