    He got fed up with me and moved behind the stem, but kept peeping out, first left then right.
    I have seen this behaviour before with grasshoppers, but never in such a youngster.

    Well caught John,whilst #1 is my choice and is certainly sharp enough, I do feel as if there is some colour missing from the subject itself.

    I like the first shot but the extra stems don't really add to the composition and if mine I would have cropped portrait

    Got loads like this last year and when they first emerge they have no colour, that develops as they dry out

    It definitely looks like he/it is keeping an eye on you. Nicely caught.

    Cheers u8myufo, , as @stanm mentioned above, this is the actual colour when they leave their nymphal, and look very delicate and vulnerable .
    Probably why they are so aware of whats looking at them re #2 :)
