A Cricket, of course. A very green one too. A Short-winged-cone-head I believe, not a very complimentary sounding name is it? It's one of the ten species of Bush Cricket that we have here in the South East, distinguished from the Grasshoppers by their much longer antennae and indeed Crickets are sometimes refered to as long-horned-grasshoppers. I don't know if this one knew he was living so precariously close to the colony of Wasp Spiders, maybe he did as he was resolutely crawling from one plant to another rather than bouncing which would have put him at much greater risk of ending up in one of their webs. Talking of our favourite spiders, tomorrow we'll be meeting the male of the species. Canon EOS 5D
