Grasshopper

While I am messing around trying to get a half decent shot of a delphinium, my wife came out with this creature on a bit of toilet tissue.
Apparently it was sat on the toilet roll. Good job it wasn't a spider or there would have been screams!
Sat it on our garden table and took a few shots handheld with the 40-150mm Pro.

1000 sec f 2.8

Yes. Antennae much longer than the body, so not a grasshopper. The brownish saddle-like area denotes a mature male SBC.
