Stacked from 3 images. It was very hard because it made tiny unseen movements during the photos. Those movements become huge when enlarged on a big monitor.

This grashopper is very similar to the Phaneroptera nana. It's hard to tell the difference and they are both known in Austria. That's why i put a "cf." in the name above.
