My guess would be a cricket nymph. You probably know that already. Species? Errr ... ummm ... I give up.

It's an orthopteran, but whether grasshopper or cricket I wouldn't know. It just seems to have a really weird shape.

Net-casting? That sounds scary. That is a sharp pic of him, showing the beady eyes and palps very clearly.

Common Crow Butterfly chrysalis - a thing of beauty which eventually produces a fairly nondescript butterfly. They also come in other amazing metallic colours.

Couple of leafhoppers, shot in Calgary. The first one is looking quite aloof.

Very colorful bugs, and your shot of them is excellent.

Two-in-one shot! Excellent.

This branch of heteroptera is certainly a confusing one. I used to call them all leafhoppers - or was that planthoppers? I've learned since then that there are several distinct branches to the group. Whatever, most people never even notice them, so we are ahead of them at least!

But one thing's for sure, I've never heard anyone call them tomartos.

Must be a nice bug season dawning in Oz. We hope to see many shots of them in the coming months.

Iridescent longhorn beetle on wild rose. Might be Plinthocoelium spp.
