My backyard has been very dry of late. It has been hard to find subjects. May be too many humans with too much insect repellent on them. Two hours yielded only the jumping spider (Menemerus sp.) I need to go further a field. #sgbiodiversity #biodiversity #latergram #greatnature #nature #insect #wildlife #portrait #wildlifephotography #sg #singapore #naturephotography #naturelovers #allnatureshots #nature_seekers #splendid_animals #exclusivea_animals #latergram #insectsofinstagram #earthcapture #bbcearth #nparksbuzz #olympus #m4/3 #mft

“It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.” (Arthur C. Doyle, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes) Walking past him on a small path in the central part of Fraser Island, I was amazed at how distinct the forms and colors were and how they stood out from the fern's green background. I guess this to be a small representative of the Acrididae, the main family of grasshoppers, and this specific one could be a Cooloola Shortwing (again, any help on full identification would be much appreciated.) #australia #australien #fraserisland #fraserislandtour #queensland #lakeboomanjin #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeonearth #animal #animals #animalshots #insects #insectsofinstagram #cooloola #cooloolashortwing #acrididae #grasshopper #heuschrecke #heuschrecken
