Cricket on the flower

Cricket on Sanchezia speciosa {Family: Acanthaceae}

A cricket hides on a Sanchezia speciosa {Family: Acanthaceae}, a colourful plant. Ants like this plant too. Sanchezia is named for José Sanchez, a nineteenth-century professor of botany at Cadiz, Spain. I like the vivid colours of this plant. The cricket was a good model for this shot. It hardly moved. Photographed at Kipandi Butterfly Park.
