Not sure what's going on here.
I think the Brown one is an adult & the other a juvenile.
At first thought they were locked in some sort of death pact - but then when I nudged them, their antennae started vibrating like crazy :?

Very nice picture, but...

it's just sitting there! We're ecpecting more from Lamma's Wildlife Photographer Extraordinaire!

How about a JUMPING grasshopper, mid-jump? :wink: :wink:

...and, by the way, what about those jumping spiders?

We like to challenge you, so you'll become even better!

WOW!
And the cool dude seems to be in mid-air! Congrats to your mid-air photo, finally!

Any larger version of the cool dude on the left? The pattern of the exoskeleton looks just amazing!

A bug that I don't the name. It's like a mask with African tattoo.

(I have got the name already. It is a Chlorophorus annularis - Bamboo Longhorn Beetle )

(Have got the name too. It is a Point-headed Grasshopper.)

This is a exuvium left behind by a Cicada. I believe it is a Cryptotympana mimica, Large Brown Cicada. It is very common in Hong Kong from spring till end of summer. This one may be fixed to the leaf for couple of months already. It is also used as a Chinese medicine but I am not sure what species of Cicada exuvium.
