The nice variety of Grasshoppers and Crickets I found in Southern Italy:

A small Field Cricket (Mittelmeerfeldgrille – Gryllus bimaculatus):

.

A Phaneroptera falcata (Sichelschrecke) – some sort of Katydid:

  1. Nice set 🙂
    Lots of species we have also here in South of France – very similar biodiversity than in South Italy

  2. Wonderful grasshopper/cricket images! My what long legs they have. I especially like the Katydid photographs. The last one is priceless.
