Camouflaged Grasshopper

Recently I made a trip to Etna. While I was atop one of its craters I saw something jumping and after some time I spotted this tiny grasshopper.  Its fascinating how it blends perfectly with the environment.  Unfortunately I took this image with the only lens that I had on me (28-105mm).  However even though this image is nothing more than a record shot, I thought that I would still share to show the splendid world that we often take for granted.

Here is a link to a website about insects found on Etna.
