It’s been a couple of weeks since my post about the little speckled bush cricket nymph I found in my herb border. It’s still there, lurking in the fennel, along with three chums. As you can see, it has developed quite a bit in that time and is starting to look a little more like the adult it will become.
Incidentally, when I posted my earlier shot of the nymph on Flickr I received a rather picky comment to the effect that it was a shame I had failed to capture it facing me. Ahem, full frontal enough now? 😉
Had to be said!
He’s becoming quite the poseur! What a beautiful colour…
He is indeed. And he has a posse now too!
What a delightful and colorful ensemble he’s wearing. 🙂 Again, love how your eye for detail makes me watch out for it more in my daily interactions with the world!
Thanks,Tricia. Once you have trained your eye for the macro world, it’s amazing what you discover!
Great shots Rachael, it is growing quite quickly!
Thanks, Karen. Yes it is. I have shot of it eating its sloughed off skin to come 😉
That little dude really knows how to wear its antennae.
It does, doesn’t it? 😉
