Bay, thank you for the family suggestion! As always, it is very appreciated!

Rieko, there are some resemblance. But the head of yours looks more like a small dragon :)

Ontem eu encontrei um bebê katydid, mas ele não é tão lindo como o seu. :)

No cellulites at all :)
Very cute little thing indeed, so many small details in the pattern. It would be very interesting to see the adult version. I hope for an ID-suggestion too...

Perfect colour match with the plant... and look at those legs! I hope someone can help with ID :-)
