Only have a few plants around our townhouse. There's about 15 of these little grasshopper nymphs all picking on one poor little plant. They've absolutely shredded it. But they're cute

Lovely captures. Interesting when the pests are more of interest than the plants :)

Thanks very much all. Haven't been doing much macro lately. Was good to get some action.

Wonderful shots of them - yes, they are really cute. Who cares if they shred the plants lol.

Cant wait for ours to appear again but it wont be for a while yet unfortunately.
