Speckled bush cricket

The juveniles I saw in July are now adults – this one (a male) seems to be doing fine despite the apparent absence of a hind leg. He’s on a bindweed leaf: could he be the one responsible for the holes in the leaf? If so, I hope he has plenty of friends to help out!

  1. So that’s what it is! I saw one in my own garden the other day but did not know what kind of cricket it was. Love his little rucksack. Beautiful picture.

  2. Awesome macro shot…
