Ionian Bright Bush-Cricket

Poecilimon jonicus


An Ionian Bright Bush-cricket! Thanks to KostasZontanos for the proper description!! Lovely name by the way!


Fields, bushes, gardens


I snapped this more than 10 years ago on the top of mount Pantokrator, our highest mountain.I used Macro to get close and slow movements. The colours and detail are stunning!! The camera must have been a 5MP Canon if I remember right...

Thank you Kostas, James and Antonio for your comments. I accidentally came upon Project Noah and thought it was a great idea. I just like snapping animals and insects amongst other things, I have no scientific interest or knowledge, just healthy curiosity and amazement for nature's little miracles... I live on an island by the sea, so as you will see, have a lot of photos of seabirds. I'm glad there are plenty of people who know how to find the species and proper names, I am very interested to know them...More coming soon..!!

Hello Petros and Welcome to the Project Noah community!
We hope you like the website as much as we do. There are many aspects to the site and community. The best way to get started is to read the FAQs at where you can find all the tips, advice and "rules" of Project Noah. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know (but that have not been identified), and make useful or encouraging comments on other users' spottings (and they on yours).
There are also "missions" you can join and add spottings to. See . A mission you should join is the to chose the best wild photo of 2017,only the spottings added to that mission are eligible.Note that most missions are "local". Be sure not to add a spotting to a mission that was outside of mission boundaries or theme :) Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. We also maintain a blog archive where we have posted previous articles from specialists from different geographical areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures".
So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around :)
