    I think this bush cricket must have very recently shed it's skin. It looks painful :eek:

    ........ and another skin shedding

    Thank you Spalding

    I'm going to add another shot of a recent shedding - I'm going to stick my neck out and suggest that this is this is Deraeocoris ruber. I don't know how long it takes before it hardens up and the colouring comes back.
    I wish I could change my own skin so easily (although not in public like this) :smile:

    This is what I think it'll look like eventually -

    Excellent Counter. I'm alway curious about what you find next time. Love that beetle in the last shot. Wouldn't we all like to change our skin sometimes.:smile:
